Post date: May 27, 2011 12:55:35 AM

Bet the Farm


The 2016 BEST Season starts Saturday 9/24/2016. At the Kick off we will see the entire game field, be given the game rules and have an opportunity for a Q&A with the Dallas Best Core team. we recommend all students who can attend do attend. All we know now is that the game is called Bet the Farm.

After the Kickoff we will meet back at Pearce for lunch, the students will then start to look at the game and think of ideas and parent volunteers will start to construct the field.

As this is most students second experience with experience with BEST and we have already done several training and organizing events we will not be attending the after kickoff Quick build session.

Students please wear a past robotics shirt or a Pearce High School shirt.
