The team will cover an introduction to the NXT and the EV3 software, the basics of building a simple two motor robot vehicle and an overview of the 2014 FLL WORLD CLASS Challenge.

December 2:

Introduction to basic programming including motor and sensor programming, how to move the robot, different methods for steering and how to use the various sensors

December 9:

Advanced programming, how to use switches and loops and making large programs into smaller ones using these constructs

January 6:

OPEN SESSION -  This session's content will be driven by the requests of teams and will also feature a short review of the challenge and several approaches to the challenge.

FTC Google Hangouts/Forum

November 19:

This will cover the basics of NXT Lego Brick, Basics of  Sensors and motor programming and also introduce the teams to the FTC problem statement and challenges. 

November  26:

This will introduce the teams to advanced concepts of RobotC  programming like encoders and joystick interface used to model the manual control of the Robot.

December 3:

This will introduce the teams to the challenges and tricks to program the autonomous behavior of the Robot and also introduce the idea of programming the Robot to Read IR beacon values which are used to model the autonomous behavior of the Robot.
December 10:

This will Focus on skill set required to complete the building and programming  of a fully functional ROBOT to participate in FTC, Interfacing and programming the Tetrix parts (Servo controller and DC motor Controller) and also simulate the code on Robot Virtual World.
