Game Day 2019


Dallas BEST Robotics is an all volunteer group of engineers, technologists, and anyone else interested in promoting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to middle, junior, and senior high school students through an annual robotics competition.  Materials are provided to the teams at no cost thanks to our generous corporate contributions.  Dallas BEST generally accepts teams from Dallas, Rockwall, Kaufman counties, and East to the state line, plus other counties as appropriate.

Coronavirus ConcernsWe are making accommodations to address the COVID-19 pandemic.  The national organizers have plans for 3 levels of operation that may differ between BEST hubs.  Our Dallas hub has decided to use the least restrictive or “Standard” plan competition, with the traditional head to head competition Game Day but with pandemic precautions. 

The 2021 competition, “Demo Daze” is now open for registration.  Details for the contest will be revealed on Kickoff Day in September.  Teams are typically school based or home school co-ops.  If you have a team interested in participating this year, please contact us using this email link.  If you are a new team, please provide some details about your students (how many, age/grade range, any experience in robotics contests) and we will reply with the registration details.  Other nearby hubs include Cowtown BEST, DC BEST (Denton County), and CoCo BEST (Collin County).

The volunteers and participants of Dallas BEST Robotics would like to thank our sponsors for supporting the annual contest. The financial support provided by Texas Instruments and the TI Foundation enabled Dallas BEST Robotics to impact over 600 students across 30 teams during the six-week competition.

We hope we can count on support from TI in the future so we can continue our mission to inspire students to pursue STEM careers.
