General Info

Are you a new coach?  Was the position assigned to you?  Are you excited, but lost on where to start? This workshop has been developed as a multipart series to help guide coaches and teams through their meetings during the season.  Each week, teams will be provided an introduction video and lesson plan for the meeting.  The goal is to help remove the pressure from coaches and allow a team of VEX students to guide your teams.  Throughout the lesson plans, students will share some of their secrets for design notebooks, interviews, and robot construction.  The team will also be availble as you run into problems or need guideance throughout the season for private class.  Our student hosts, have been involved in VEX IQ since 2nd grade and now are competing as 11th graders in VRC, team 5203G.
