Grab some design books, and start building.  I usually start my rookies with a pre-designed robot (i.e. the instructional builds), and let them work from there...it's a great way to learn solid build techniques.  Go through some programming challenges to learn little things that will help you learn.  Start small, and avoid being overly ambitious.  Maybe try a sumobot challenge as a way to get the kids excited, and your feet wet.

This is the first year that our school's team here at Hunters Woods ES in Reston is meeting during the off-season. 

We'd like to talk to someone with more experience about the best ways to use the time.  We are meeting once a week and we have mostly rookies with little or no experience in building and programming.

Thank you
