We are Northwest Florida Robot Spot, Inc., a 501 (c) (3) organization where local middle- and high-school aged home schoolers meet to learn about STEM, marketing, public speaking, graphic design, teamwork, technical writing, all while being tasked with a real-world problem that needs an inventive solution. Organized and encouraged by their coach and mentors, the club is entirely student-led. They create a fictitious company from the ground up including leadership roles, website design, logo design, t-shirt design, and of course the design, engineering, and building of their machine that will be marketed as the best machine to buy in order to solve the problem at hand. Supported by our hub, Emerald Coast BEST, our team competes in the fall along with many other area public and private schools.
100% of the funds we raise will go towards competing in the 2019 BEST Robotics competition. Because we are made up of a coalition of home school students, we do not receive any public funds like a majority of our competitors in the Public School System.
