This is an in-the-trenches introduction to participating in the VEX IQ Challenge for coaches and mentors. No philosophy, no sales pitch, this is simply the information you need to get your VIQC program off to a solid start.
NOTE: This workshop is free, and we especially invite experienced coaches to share their expertise.
This workshop is led by Rick Tyler of Robot Mesh.

He spent seven years working for VEX Robotics and the REC Foundation as the regional manager for the northwest and director of the Online Challenge program, and has been with Robot Mesh as head of its Education efforts since early 2016. He is excited about sharing this experiences wth you.
