We recently asked coaches what off-season activities they do with their teams on Twitter. A few coaches asked, “what off-season”? – many teams keep the FIRST® fun going year-round!
Are you looking to keep your team engaged this summer so they’re ready to blast off when the INTO ORBITSM Challenge releases on August 1?
Here are a few ideas:
- Work on your programming skills. You can find activities here.
- Work on building your team identity
- Host or attend a workshop event
- Take field trips (a visit to a local planetarium may help build excitement for the upcoming season)
- If your school/organization has past Challenge Sets, work on a previous Challenge! You can find archived Challenge info here.
- Check out our Pinterest for fun STEM activities
- Coaches – sign up for FIRST Steps and take a look at our Coach Quick Tip videos
