Team Resources for 2016-2017

The theme for the 2016-2017 school year BEST competition is "Bet the Farm."  See the teaser video below for a preview of what is to come.

The 2016-2017 BEST team leaders will be as follows:

CEO: Kyle Cutchens
Build Team Leader: Corbin Smith
Programming Team Leader: Aaron Smith
Spirit Team Leader: Hughston Singleton
Marketing Team Leader: Eric Holley
Engineering Notebook: Trey Brownlee

In preparation for this year's event, Kyle, Eric and Aaron have made 2 separate visits to our middle school to recruit this year's upcoming freshmen and next year's upcoming freshmen. These visits have greatly raised interest in BEST. These up and coming students will be the future of BEST at ECHS!

Team Accomplishments and Updates

On January 28, 2016, Wiregrass BEST used their Facebook page to ask for submissions for this year's logo to be used in the competition. We submitted a logo design and were chosen as the winners of the 2016-2017 logo contest. Our logo will be used by all of the schools in our hub during this year’s competition.

On September 29, 2016, the executive committee of our BEST team met with the Blakely Rotary Club for their lunchtime meeting. During the meeting, Rotarians were introduced to BEST Robotics and were shown the game field video. After the presentation of the video, Eric Holley made a Powerpoint presentation  to the organization. The team leaders received a great, positive reaction from all Rotarians in attendance and a book was donated to the local library in honor of the team's visit.
