FALL SEASON - Boosting Engineering Science and Technology (BEST) competition

At the beginning of the school year, we compete in the HEARTLAND BEST competition. During this competition we are known as the Oklahoma City Home School Robotics Team. Most of the students are home-schooled, but we welcome students from public and private schools as well.

CHECK OUT OUR 2013 Student designed Website.

SPRING SEASON - OKC FIRST Robotics Competition(FRC)

In the Spring, we compete in the Oklahoma City FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). When we do activities related to FRC we become the Oklahoma County 4-H Robotics Team. Since we are a part of the Oklahoma County 4-H youth organization, there are opportunities to be involved with a wide variety of other activities and benefits as well as robotics.


For Younger Students - FIRST Lego League (FLL)

We have considered re-starting our FLL (FIRST Lego League) team:
The Mini-Munkees
Several things have to occur for this to happen. Contact coach Stuart or Larry if interested.
