Ask An Expert: Informational Calls for Teams, Mentors and Coaches

Each season, FIRST Programs create informational webinars for rookie and veteran teams, mentors and coaches. These are invaluable for those who are new to FIRST and also for those who need to brush up on their skills. Typically, these calls begin in late August and continue through February of the following year, and in the end, cover roughly 25 topics, cross-program.

Here are some sample topics from previous years:

  • FLL:  Coach 101-The Robot Game-Core Values-Judging
  • FTC: Mentor 101-Samantha-Team Strategy
  • FRC: Choosing a Competition-Chairman's Award-Robot Transporation List

Please review our call schedule below for the 2014-2015 season. Recordings are posted to our site within 1-2 days after the call.
