BEST Robotics Competition

This competition is for Upper Division students (Divisions IV and V). It runs only six weeks, and culminates in a demonstration of our robot’s prowess in Denver. We are one of only three Pikes Peak Region schools competing in the BEST Competition in any of the four Colorado BEST hubs this year. We hope to organize a local hub for this program soon.
