General Info

VRC STRATEGY DICTATES DESIGN CHAT - a workshop for Coaches

This workshop will be held remotely using Zoom, and will be available to all Coaches and Teachers - but will be limited to 75 attendees due to digital seat restrictions.

  • This Workshop is primarily for new, returning and potential Coaches for the VEX Robotics Competition (as we will only be discussing the 2021/2022 VRC Game), but VEX IQ Competition and VEX U Competition Coaches are welcome to join. In keeping with YPP Guidelines, participants must be at least 18 years old to attend.
  • This event will be recorded and posted for future viewing.
  • A VIQC Strategy Dictates Design Chat will be scheduled soon.
  • A link to the Zoom call will be sent to registered participants about one hour before the Workshop.
  • If you have specific questions or concerns that you’d like me to address, please feel free to email me at brandi_bolinger@roboticseducation.org at least one day prior to the Workshop.
