BEST Spartan Robotics
BEST Robotics is an organization in which STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) students have the opportunity to compete in several categories, but also play a role on the robot design/build team, the marketing group, exhibit booth presenters, and so much more! BEST mimics industry by developing a product (the robot) and delivering the product to the public. BEST Robotics consists of middle and high school teams from across the United States. Middle and high school teams all compete in one competition.
BEST Spartan Robotics has competed in this robotics competition for nine years. During regional play, teams compete and winning teams advance to participate in Auburn, Al. against teams from five states in the southeast United States. The best of BEST Robotics then compete. Saraland Middle School's robotics team has been named the TOP Middle school for the last two years. Competing against high schools, Saraland Middle School's robot placed 11th in the NATION.
