Sarah: You've gotten lots of good advice from this group so not sure I can
add too much more of value.  My suggestion is start by picking just ONE
mission that your team can do and FOCUS on that for your next meeting.
There are some relatively easy missions that can be accomplished by a simple
program to have the robot push something or move a short distance and
return.  I suspect the kids will be thrilled to achieve even such a simple
mission, and that will inspire them to move on to some others.  Even if you
only master a handful of them it's still worth going to the competition.
The experience will be an inspiring eye opener to you and the whole team.
For ideas on how to build your robot you can search YouTube for videos of
previous competitions.

Good luck!

Subject: [VADCFLL-L] Help with FLL Please!

Hi everyone,

This is my first time coach and I am feeling a little lost!  It was a last 
minute decision to get a group of students together and compete this year 
in FLL.  Seeing as how the competition is in November, I'm starting to 
feel the pressure!  Any suggestions???  We have met about 3 times and the 
students have a working robot with the NXT kit.  I have some questions if 
anyone can help me!

1.  Do the NXT Robots have to be built a specific way for competition?  Or 
is it up to students how they build it?

2.  With the climate missions this year, do you compile 1 program that the 
robot is designed to do ALL Missions within taht ONE program?  Or can you 
do a series of programs to accomplish the missions?  

3.  I know I have a lot of reading and researching to do but is there 
something someone would suggest as a starting point?

Any help would be SO appreciated!!!
Thanks!!!
Sarah
