Event description

Description

The coaches and members from Wizards.EXE will be offering a 6-hour introduction for coaches, mentors, and parents on the key aspects of the running a FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Team. The goal is to help you learn about how to lead the team during the season with a focus on the Project and EV3 programming. The session will be taught using real examples and lead by coaches and team members from past FLL Championship teams: Mindstorm Masterminds, Organized Kaos, and Probemasters. On Day 1, August 28th, we will cover the Research Project & Core Values. On Day 2, August 29th, we will cover Programming and EV3.

The training will include slides, examples, and exercises you can use with your team. We will use past experiences and example to provide guidance with the top tips for coaches. On Day 1, we will go over key features of a successful FLL project, from identifying and researching the problem to developing viable solutions. This will include how to schedule and manage project related tasks.

The bulk of the session on Day 2 will focus on an introduction to the Robot and EV3 programming, At the end of the session, you should be able to help your team get started with the robot and programming. The preliminary agenda includes:

  • Pseudocode and flowcharts
  • Introduction to the EV3 programming environment
  • Making the robot move straight and turns
  • Introduction to sensors

This is a hands-on training and we require that you bring a Laptop with the EV3 program pre-loaded and an EV3 robot with a few sensors. If multiple adults from your team/organization are attending, you are welcome to share 1 robot/laptop. Each day costs $10 (one ticket per day), and tickets are good for one adult. We also have 4 tickets available that include access to a robot and laptop with the software installed, each of which are $15. Since EV3 access is only required on August 29, only purchase this ticket on your order for August 29. If this is a financial difficulty, or if you have any other questions contact wizards.exe@gmail.com and we'd be happy to figure out arrangements for you to join us. Space is limited, so please sign up soon.
