Excellent information on Starting a FIRST LEGO League Team can be found on the FIRST LEGO League Start a Team web page!
Check out an excellent FIRST LEGO League Coach Training Power Point presented by Ben and Jean Williams, coaches of the award winning Bayou Builders team, during a workshop on Saturday, Aug. 3rd, 2019. We hope to have the video recording soon and will post.
Check out Techbrick Robotics in Maryland for Challenge Worksheets and Resources, including Scoring Sheets, Images For Worksheet/ Posters/Clothing, Strategy Worksheet for the Challenge Pieces, Step-By-Step Programming Worksheet, What is a Team Info Sheet?, Cool LEGO Ruler With Stud Counters, Group Exercises for Team Building and more!
Building and Programming Your Robot: There are tutorials built into the LEGO Mindstorms software that are very helpful. In addition, you can check out EV3Lessons by the FIRST Team Not the Droids, which provides a complete set of LEGO MINDSTORMS programming lessons for teams, teachers, and robotics enthusiasts. The tutorials are clear, to-the-point, and comprehensive, with something for every level of user. And we concur – it’s a great resource!
We also highly recommend FLL Tutorials, also provided by FIRST Team Not the Droids, which provides best practices for getting the most out of your FIRST LEGO League season.
YouTube is a valuable resource for accessing what other teams are sharing. Look for videos on past challenges or even on current solutions to missions once they are released at the end of August.
