I’m curious about other coaches/mentors experience and thoughts.
Good planning and good project management are great skills for the students to develop and fit naturally into VEX IQ. I coach MS Vex IQ. I’ve considered and put aside trying to teach waterfall, simply because it feels like a lot of documentation when the kids really just want to build
I settled on a simpler system where we look at the season, identify when the competitions are, define what they want the robot to be capable of at that competition and then work backwards scheduling tasks to practices to get to goal. If there isn’t enough time, we adjust. It’s pretty intuitive and easy.
Anyone else have other ideas or methods that you find work well?
