General Info

This workshop is for Southern New England region Teacher/Coaches/Mentors of VEX Robotics Competition teams to prepare for the Tower Takeover season. This workshop is being run by Framingham Robotics Club advisors Pascal Chesnais and Peter Erbland who have extensive experience running middle and high school VRC teams and hosting events.  Our intent is to prepare new and returning Teacher/Coaches/Mentors for this season by analyzing the game, understanding the new RECF Student-centered Policy, reviewing season schedule, engineering notebook/rubric, and exploring new V5 programming resources.
