  The first time I coached, I asked one of my team parents to come in 
and work with kids on the research project.  Two or three kids took the 
lead on the project and did the research and wrote a rap song and a 
presentation.  They taught the other kids about the subject and gave 
them roles in the presentation.  I had the build/design group teach the 
research project kids about what they were doing and the research 
project kids spent some time solving a couple of missions, but were not 
involved in building the base robot.  We only had one mindstorms kit and 
with a large (9 or 10 kid) team, the research project made it so that I 
could keep everyone busy during the meetings.

I urge you to do the research project; I expect you will find at least 
one team member who really gets excited about it and takes a lead role.
