Our first 3 sessions were focused on team building.

I think u can find enough without the kit to get them to learn,  develop a plan, do project research.
V r building models now shile the research goes on.
Good luck..

</div>I wouldn't stress too much.  We typically order ours a little late.  We start our season working on project research, and working towards a topic.  We also work on team building - especially with new team members in the mix.  The entire season is not the robot game, so I make sure I instill that appreciation in my team early on. We are about three meetings in, and haven't done much more than mention the robot. 

Remember the last core value, and don't forget to have fun!

Laura,

That is a shame. But you can have a productive team meeting without
the field kit. For example, it can be very productive to have a
meeting that focuses on robot construction, programming, strategy,
driving, etc., without the distraction of solving the individual table
puzzles. If the team is new, they could begin constructing the robot
or learning to drive it in strategic ways. If they are experienced and
already have a working robot, they could try to knock out their
research project planning.

Good luck getting the kit!
Mike

> As an FYI- as a 5th year coach- I got confused on the new system of registering and thought I had ordered a field set up kit  but had not- I had done everything else.   and now they are having a problem with credit cards and NO one can order kits until they get it fixed which could be up to two days from now. I am disappointed as I have a team meeting this Saturday- they told me there was nothing I could do. Laura
