One again, the Robotics Academy will hold training sessions for coaches and mentors of First Lego League teams at the National Robotics Engineering Center at 10 40th Street in the Lawrenceville section of the city.
The first session, for new coaches and mentors only will be held on Tuesday, September 14 from 6:00 pm until about 7:30 pm. This session will review the role of the coach and how to build team solidarity. We will cover areas such as ‘How to prepare for a tournament’ and give you an idea of a
time line for your team. There will be a short tour of the NREC facility so that there will be no surprises for you or your team on the day of the tournament. Powerpoint slideshows on robot building and use of sensors will be shown.
The second session is designed for all coaches and mentors. There will be two days of training, both presenting the same program. These sessions will be held on Tuesday and Wednesday, September 21 and 22, from 6:00 pm until about 7:30 pm, also at the NREC. During these sessions, we will review the challenges and rules for this year’s competition. We will have a competition board set up and will answer any questions you may have.
If you are planning on attending any of the sessions, please register with Norm Kerman, Education Coordinator at the Robotics Academy at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions, he may be reached by phone at 412/681-8673.
