It was great to see so many of you last Saturday. We are having our next Coaches Clinic this Saturday.
Where: University of Texas at Dallas, Science and Engineering Education Center (SEEC), FN 2.302. (We will send parking passes and a map later this week)
When: Saturday September 29, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Who: This Clinic is for Coaches and Assistant Coaches. If you would like to bring one or two captains of your team that is OK
What: Building Tips and Chassis
The second coaches clinic covers all the parts that come with your Mindstorms kits—white and blue. We will discuss how to build with the Technic beams, how the parts go together, and when to use different parts. We will also talk about the many different successful designs of chassis, 2 point, 3 point, 4 point, and treads. Finally, we will talk about the major trouble shooting points of the chassis, how do you make it go straight, how do you make it stop in the same spot every time, and how to make it turn consistently.
We will also have two fields available to discuss the game.
Look for an email on Thursday or Friday with a map of the campus and parking pass.
The other coaches' workshops will be:
October 20, 9:00 AM to 12:00 and 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM, Beginning and Advanced Programming with Mindstorms
October 27, 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM Attachments and Tournament Preparation
Look for announcements on the North Texas FLL Group as well. You should have received an invitation to join the Google group. If you have not, please email me and I will get you an invitation.
See you soon!
