COACHES WORKSHOP

The DFW Technology & Education Council hosted a FLL Explore Coaches Virtual Conference on Saturday, December 12, 2021. The conference was for new and returning coaches, as well as teachers and community volunteers that have an interest in possibly starting a FLL Explore team (formerly FLL Jr.).

Some of our veteran FLL Explore coaches in North Texas provided our participants with practical tips and best practices on how to launch and coach an FLL Explore Team. In addition, information was shared about what this season’s events will look like and a little bit about how remote events will run. If you have questions concerning a particular topic that was not answered during the session, please email info@dfwtec.org
