Abstract

This paper describes the history of GEAR, BEST Robotics and FIRST Robotics in West Texas and analyzes the relative benefits of these programs. We feel that the best case scenario includes both types of programs so that widespread involvement can be achieved cost-effectively through GEAR and BEST and that a more sophisticated level of involvement is available to those with the interest and aptitude through FIRST.
