We had a building party this week and the kids brought laptops with them, which made things so much easier.

I've heard of teams doing both.  The advantage to printing is that you can parallelize the build process.  My team was able to knock out 9 of the 10 models in 2 1/2 hours last Saturday.  If you do print them, you can print in black and white because the instructions list the color of all of the parts for each step.

As a rookie coach, I have a silly question. Do most people print out the building instructions or do you work off looking directly at the computer. Printing would be hundreds of pages!!!

>>   Lots of teams like to get together during August or after they form in September to have a "build party".  Team members can get familiar with uses for different types of LEGO pieces and have the mission models ready to go.

>>  For rookie coaches, and others who'd like to get more comfortable with FLL, keep an eye on the FLL Coach Calls that will be listed at http://www.firstlegoleague.org/challenge/teamresources  (plus, you can start by listening to some of the recordings from last year--the basics of mentoring a team apply every year--only the specifics of the robot game and the project challenge should change.)  There is a lot of good material linked from the Coach/Team Resources page, so try to check there multiple times during the season for help.
