Training for Coaches


We host and co-host multiple robotics focused trainings for Nevada coaches and educators throughout the year. In the summer we hold our yearly, week-long Robotics Academy of Nevada event for all robotics educators in the state. These trainings are meant to help introduce robotics and robotics competitions to new coaches, reinforce and support key concepts for experienced coaches, and give space for networking within the robotics community. Check this page or our upcoming events page periodically for trainings, student and community events.

We value your input! As educators you are the experts in what it takes to have a successful robotics team, club or class. Take the 2020-2021 survey to share your feedback on your experiences with our latest and past offerings as well as any current needs. Your thoughts, needs and feedback will be used to tailor our spring and summer offerings.
