I apologize for the multiple emails, I have two important updates though.
I have 2 items for you today.
1. FTC Robotics Professional Development
2. Registration clarification
1.FTC Robotics Intro PD
This professional development workshop for teachers/mentors assumes no prior experience with FTC robot construction or programming. The course starts with an introduction to FTC robot construction hardware (Tetrix) and basic robot construction. The course then walks attendees through the underlying Java language curriculum, exploring the Java language itself, the development tools used and a full set of example robot control programs. Attendees will use the example programs to operate actual robots during the course.
The course fee is $149 and includes 10 STEM clock hours, free curriculum resources and instruction from a FTC veteran and course author.
