Five members of the Brewer High School Robotics Team competed in the Cowtown BEST Robotics Competition on Oct. 19. Pictured are: Kameron Ahmed, Kobi Adair, Tyler Jenkins, Hanif Kassam-Dhanji and Justin Herrington.
Other members are Cameron Reed, Spencer Whitehead and Sydney Kaspar. Sponsor is Tommy Bowers.
This year's theme was Off the Grid. The teams had six weeks to design and build a machine to restore power including the installation of high tension wires, transformers and conduit, and cleaning up debris after a tornado or hurricane demolished an area. Brewer finished in the middle of the 28 teams after the eight rounds of competition were completed, their best performance yet.
The mission of BEST (Boosting Engineering Science & Technology) is to inspire students to pursue careers in engineering, science, technology, and math through participation in a sports-like science and engineering based robotics competition.
