Time flew! It was already the time for our third year annual FIRST Lego League (FLL) coach training seminar.
Based on our experience from the last two years, we wanted to add more value for potential FLL coaches. Not only did we want to cover general information about the FLL competition, but we also wanted to show some Lego Mindstorms EV3 technical details, which would be really helpful for new coaches without experience in Lego Mindstorms. Anthony Li, a student who has six years of FLL experience, took this challenge. His great technical knowledge and public speaking skills impressed all the attendees. Everyone listened to his presentation and became excited to coach an FLL team.
Rong Xu, a coach who has volunteered in FIRST for many years, shared her FIRST and FLL experiences and emphasized why FLL is important to everyone. Jenny Li, who has coached FLL teams for six years, told the potential coaches her inspiring FLL journey. The speakers went through all three parts of FLL and explained how they guided their teams throughout the competition season.
After coming in and listening to this year’s training, all of the new coaches felt confident about the coming FLL season.
Good luck, coaches and teams!
