Show-Me BestShow-Me BEST logo Robotics competition

State Fair Community College is partnering with area business and industry to inspire Missouri students to pursue careers in

  • Engineering,
  • Science,
  • Technology, and
  • Mathematics

by providing opportunities for students to participate in sports-like science- and engineering-based robotics competition.  

In fall 2013, SFCC in coordination with BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science and Technology), a non-profit organization committed to promoting these career paths nationwide, will provide the only competition hub in the state of Missouri for middle-and high-school age students.

Why is participation in BEST important? Because our nation needs a workforce with skill sets in these types of careers to help meet real-world challenges now and in the future.

Students involved in BEST become competent and confident in:

  • Abstract thinking
  • Self-directed learning
  • Teamwork
  • Project management
  • Decision-making
  • Problem-solving
  • Leadership
