WHAT IS BEST OF TEXAS ROBOTICS?
BEST of Texas Robotics, a dynamic middle and high school robotics program with a profound mission: to prepare our youth for a future of STEAM excellence and workforce readiness. We are focused on reskilling our youth for the challenges of tomorrow. Did you know that growing the healthcare workforce is critical to strengthening our economy and improving our quality of life. Our game this year is right on par with the nationwide initiative of growing our healthcare pipeline.
At the heart of our program lies a unique vision: taking everyday materials and transforming them into something extraordinary. Picture plywood, PVC pipes, screws, and other hardware converging with unexpected elements like an irrigation valve cover, piano wire, an expanded aluminum sheet, a bicycle inner tube, a BRAIN programmable platform, and a micro-energy chain system. In just eight weeks, we nurture these components into a fully functional machine capable of completing specific tasks within three minutes.
This is the essence of BEST of Texas Robotics – an innovative initiative that empowers students to not only build machines but to build their future. Our program extends far beyond technical skills. It fosters collaboration, communication, attention to detail, critical thinking, and the ability to follow directions – skills that are not just essential, but imperative in today's evolving workforce landscape.
What makes our program even more remarkable is that it operates at no cost to schools – whether public, private, charter, or homeschool. We firmly believe that every student, regardless of their background, should have access to high-quality STEAM education. This is where your support comes in.
We invite you to be a part of our journey. By contributing to BEST of Texas Robotics, you're investing in a brighter future for our youth, one filled with endless possibilities. Your donation will directly impact the materials we provide, the experiences we create, and the pathways we open for students.
But that's not all. Our commitment to inclusivity drives us to push boundaries further. We are thrilled to continue our partnership with Unified UIL Robotics teams, where students with and without Intellectual Disabilities collaborate, learn, and compete side by side. Through this initiative, we aim to break down barriers and create an environment where everyone can thrive and contribute.
Your donation isn't just a contribution; it's a testament to your belief in education, innovation, and the power of unity. Join us in shaping young minds, fostering meaningful relationships, and helping all students communicate effectively across diverse backgrounds.
