Ready to Register for 2013 BEST Robotics?

As crazy as it seems, BEST Robotics registration for Northeast Alabama BEST Robotics 2013 is just around the corner. Details regarding registration will be posted here beginning on May 6.

We will no longer use Robot Events, so there is no need to register there. Please stay tuned for more important information about the 2013 season.

Teams who competed last year will retain the same team numbers; new teams will receive a team number on kick off day.
