SCHE Eclipse Robotics
We are a group of Christian homeschoolers from the Starkville, MS area who have been competing at BEST (Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology) since 2007.
When we started in 2007, our first team consisted of a group of twelve members and two mentors. We have since grown to twenty-three members with five mentors in 2008, and then to twenty-four members with eight mentors in 2009. We are headed by Mr. Michael Lane, our original mentor, who has done an excellent job in getting us organized. In 2008, our second year, we finished in second place in the BEST award and third place overall at Bulldog BEST! We advanced to South's BEST, the regional competition, at Auburn University in Alabama. At Auburn we placed forty-second out of fifty, ranking higher than veteran regional teams. In 2009, we bested our previous standings by placing first at Bulldog BEST in the BEST award and eleventh out of fifty-two at South's BEST.
Last year a newspaper article about SCHE Team Eclipse was featured in the Starkville Daily Newspaper. The article talked about BEST, the SCHE (Starkville Christian Home Educators) team, our members, what members have learned from the competition, and how this competition has benefited the members in other areas of their life. It also explained the assignment given last year, what our individual team groups did, and how being involved in the event has encouraged members to consider becoming an engineer.
If you would like to interview any of the members on our team or would like more information, you may contact our at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also visit our website at http://www.schescience.org/.
We are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the 2011 BEST competition.
