Space City BEST

Space City Best Logo


Space City BEST was formed in 1999 to provide the benefits of BEST to the Houston area. The vision of BEST is “to excite our nation’s students about engineering, science, and technology to unlock their imagination and discover their potential”. Through the continued involvement of a dedicated core of volunteers, teachers, sponsors, and schools, Space City BEST has provided a very exciting, well managed, enjoyable education opportunity for thousands of kids over the last decade. The number of schools participating in the Space City hub quickly grew from 11 the first year of the hub’s existence to 24 teams, where it has stayed ever since. Although the list of participating schools and the event location changes regularly, the benefit to the kids remains the same. Some of the very kids who participated BEST while in school are now returning as professional mentors or volunteers as working engineers.
