Training for Coaches

The Montshire Museum and BAE Systems have teamed up to provide two training sessions for coaches this summer/fall.

FIRST® LEGO® Rookie Coaches Training

Interested in starting a FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL®) team, but have more questions, or are not sure where to start? This workshop is for you! This training targets individuals who are interested in starting an FLL® team and current FLL® coaches that are interested in learning more. The training provides an overview of what it means to be a coach as well as tips and tricks from veteran coaches. In addition, event judges and coordinators will provide their insight as well in what it takes to prepare a team.

Training for FIRST® LEGO® League Coaches—FLL® Programming Workshop

Worried that you don't know anything about programming and have a gaggle of kids to teach? Well, put your mind at ease! Come spend a day for a hands-on training session. We will go over basic and intermediate operation of an EV3 Lego Robot. This class will be tailored to coaches of FLL® teams. We will learn basic navigation and object manipulation as well as some simple but effective uses of sensors. At the end you should be comfortable helping your team learn and have a productive and fun season. Randy Witwik, founder of STEM Robotics, will lead the workshop.

NOTE: This workshop will only focus on the EV3 robot not the NXT model.
