Piedmont Academy is forming a team to compete in the Georgia BEST Robotics’ competition!
The BEST program involves six weeks of intensive work to design, to build, and to test a robot that can perform a specific task on a “playing field” along with robots from competing schools. The competition’s sponsors will provide the parts from which the robot must be made. Adult mentors will offer advice and direction, but students will be responsible for satisfying the competition requirements—that is, they will do the work.
At the competition, the team will be judged on the following:
Our team needs students who will contribute in the areas of problem solving (conceptualizing), mechanics (designing, constructing, and testing), physical coordination (driving the robot), documenting team meetings and events through photography and video, writing for the engineering notebook, public speaking, creating and maintaining a website, designing artwork for a team t-shirt and a table display, and giving positive support to fellow team members throughout the six-week competition period.
