South's BEST

Boosting Engineering Science and Technology

    BEST is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization whose mission is to inspire students to pursue careers in engineering, science, and technology through participation in a sports-like, science and engineering-based robotics competition.     Each year features a new game with themes ranging from nanotechnology used in the medical field to Martian supply carriers.
    The yearly competition simulates two real-world activities: the design and construction of a robot to complete a specific task and the development of a marketing plan to sell the robot.

    Azalea City BEST was started in 2004 and renamed to Jubilee BEST in 2006. Jubilee BEST is made up of 30 schools from southern Alabama. Initially, Jubilee grew too fast, and schools from the Florida Panhandle formed Emerald Coast BEST.
    The Jubilee BEST Director is Robin Fenton, who is now a member of BEST's national board of directors. Each year, Jubilee BEST is very successful at South's BEST, winning several high-ranking awards.

    In 2001, Auburn University's Samuel Ginn College of Engineering and College of Sciences and Mathematics jointly created a local BEST hub, Alabama BEST, as an effort to "grow" future engineers, scientists, and technical professionals to meet the future needs of business and industry in the state.
    Alabama BEST made a tremendous impact in its first year as a BEST competition site. Word of the competition spread throughout Alabama and even across state lines as more organizations and universities wanted to know how to start BEST competitions in their communities.
    Alabama BEST became South's BEST, serving hubs east of the Mississippi River. It grew from those first 36 teams to 50 teams from 11 hubs in 2008.
