At Home Activity:

We had a special weekend  class on Engineering Notebook. This class Provided resources on how to document. This is one activity that can be done at home. So please have the kids spend at least 1hr a week on documentation.

There are a lot of online resources and youtube videos on VEX robotics and their games Slapshot or Spinup. Have them research on these at home. This gives them lot of ideas..

We are also considering letting teams take V5 kits home. This may give more time to the kids work at home. Please discuss with your team who will be taking the kits and which location they will be meeting. Who will be responsible for bringing the kits back to school to continue working on it.  Please let us know if this would help? and who in your team will host.
