GEAR stands for Getting Excited About Robotics.  This program provides elementary and middle school students with an opportunity to explore science and engineering through a robotics competition that utilizes team-supplied LEGO® Mindstorms™ kits.

SA BEST has enjoyed organizing and executing the GEAR competition from 2006 through 2009 in a partnership with UTSA. The responsibility for the organization of GEAR in San Antonio has moved from SA BEST to UTSA's iTEC program.  Please follow the previous link for information about future GEAR competitions.
