WHY Support  BEST of Texas Robotics?

BEST of Texas Robotics is a dynamic middle and high school program dedicated to preparing our youth for a future of STEAM excellence and workforce readiness. Our mission is to equip young minds with the skills necessary to tackle tomorrow's challenges, particularly in fields critical to our economy, such as healthcare. This year's competition aligns perfectly with the nationwide push to expand our healthcare workforce.

Imagine taking everyday materials like plywood, PVC pipes, screws, and other hardware, and transforming them into extraordinary machines. Our students use an array of unexpected elements, including irrigation valve covers, piano wire, expanded aluminum sheets, bicycle inner tubes, BRAIN programmable platforms, and micro-energy chain systems. In just eight weeks, they turn these components into fully functional machines capable of completing specific tasks within three minutes.

Participating in BEST Robotics, especially through our LOW G game emphasizing the Mission to the Moon and Mars, equips students with crucial skills for the semiconductor and aerospace sectors. The program emphasizes critical technical abilities such as programming, coding, and cybersecurity, which are essential for developing advanced semiconductor technologies. Through projects that simulate space exploration and satellite design, students gain valuable experience directly applicable to the aerospace industry. Skills in automation, precision engineering, and quality control developed through these challenges align perfectly with the semiconductor sector’s demands for meticulous attention to detail and cutting-edge manufacturing techniques.

Furthermore, the focus on renewable energy systems and smart grid technologies in the game aligns with the aerospace sector's needs for sustainable and efficient energy solutions. Hands-on projects involving robotic systems for assembly and maintenance prepare students for roles in both semiconductor fabrication and aerospace manufacturing. Additionally, the emphasis on collaboration, communication, attention to detail, critical thinking, and the ability to follow complex directions ensures that participants are well-prepared to meet the rigorous demands of these high-tech industries. Through these targeted initiatives, BEST Robotics nurtures a workforce capable of leading advancements in both the semiconductor and aerospace sectors.

This is the essence of BEST of Texas Robotics: an innovative program that empowers students not only to build machines but to build their future. Beyond technical skills, our program fosters collaboration, communication, attention to detail, critical thinking, and the ability to follow directions—skills essential in today’s evolving workforce.

What sets our program apart is that it is offered at no cost to public, private, charter, and homeschool students. We believe every student, regardless of background, should have access to high-quality STEAM education. This is where your support makes a difference.

By contributing to BEST of Texas Robotics, you invest in a brighter future for our youth, opening doors to endless possibilities. Your donation directly impacts the materials we provide, the experiences we create, and the pathways we open for students.

Our commitment to inclusivity also drives us to push boundaries further. We proudly partner 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 unity. Join us in shaping young minds, fostering meaningful relationships, and helping all students communicate effectively across diverse backgrounds. Together, we can build a future where every student has the opportunity to succeed.




BEST of Texas Robotics (BTR) strives to positively impact education systems across Texas and the United States, by engaging, exciting, and inspiring students to pursue post-secondary academics and/or careers in engineering, science, and technology through participation in a sports-like science- and engineering-based robotics program which introduces and reinforces STEM mindsets and workforce readiness skills.


BEST of Texas Robotics is focused on the ever-changing technological world that our students encounter. By designing challenges with real world application, we recognize that we need to keep up with the technology being utilized in the workforce. We are currently working to refresh all our robotics kits with new technology to continue to challenge our students to design, build and program robots in new and innovative ways. We hope to expand our reach to more schools which creates the need for additional robotics kits. The easiest and most impactful way to support BEST of Texas Robotics is through generous donations. Your generous donations will help BEST of Texas Robotics continue to offer an innovative robotics experience at no cost to students, staff or districts.
