FLL Clinic at Poly/NYU Dec. 3, 2011



We are now mid-season and I thought we would check in with our rookie team(s)/coach(es).
We are having a clinic December 3rd for rookie teams and coaches to help trouble shoot any problems you may be having with designing or programming your robot. 

You will learn how to better use different LEGO parts and take advantage of NXT G programming blocks.
The clinic is designed for the coach and student to learn and build together. 

Attendance should consist of 1 coach/2 students. 
*You cannot attend without your student(s)*  (I suggest you bring your top builder and programmer this way they can take what they learned back to the team.)

There are 3 key elements that will be discussed:
--> Basic Navigation
--> Navigation with attachments
--> How to make sensors work for you

Please bring your laptop w/charger, complete nxt kit w/current built robot, one built attachment, and extra LEGO pieces to build another attachment from scratch.

We will start with a 30 minute lecture/introduction; then you will be broken into groups to start working on your robot.
Robotic technicians will be on hand to assist with any questions; an FLL playing field will be available to practice running your missions.

There are four session blocks which last 2.5hrs each.  Please pick which session you would prefer to attend.

You will be assigned in the order that your registration is received and availability of time slots.
