2. Kickoff is just around the corner!
It is hard to believe but kickoff is just around the corner. I’m so excited to see what this year’s game is!
Remember, you will need a team roster at your event. Now is the time to get all of your students signed up on their dashboards and make sure they are all part of your team. I know many schools won’t return from their break until after kickoff so it helps to get all of your ducks in a row before the break starts!
3. Java for Robots (EV3)
FTC & FRC Coaches/Mentors
The below Java for Robots (EV3) professional development at the FIRST Washington Fieldhouse in Kent on January 23 would equip you teach students the Java curriculum used for FTC & FRC, but on the less expensive (and more plentiful, so more students have their own robots while learning to code) EV3 robot.
Java for Robots (EV3) provides a path to text-based programming for the EV3, leading to skills needed for FIRST Tech Challenge and FIRST Robotics Competition, as well as advanced programming classes like AP Computer Science or Computer Science Principles. Participants walk-thru the free Java for Robots EV3 (Robo102) curriculum and earn 7 STEM clock hours for this workshop. Upcoming workshop in Kent (Jan 23).
