One of our sponsors, PTC, is offering a team mentor/student training event on November 7th from 9AM - 3PM. PTC will be training FIRST teams on the engineering process utilizing their software packages Creo and Mathcad. This training will be a comprehensive, hands-on training session, tailored for FIRST team members and their mentors. We get Creo's software for free in the Kit of Parts every year, and it is our primary CAD platform. If you are interested in helping the team with CAD, this training is for you! I would suggest downloading Creo and Mathcad before the training, you can find it at: http://www.ptc.com/communities/academic-program/k12/students/first.
Lunch will be provided by PTC during the training, but you should still bring a light snack and water to keep you going while you work. You can arrive at the training as early as 8:30, and if you're having any difficulty getting Creo and Mathcad installed you should show up early for help.
Arrow Electronics is providing their Englewood facility for the training, and due to their generosity the training is at no cost to FIRST teams students and mentors. The facility is at 7459 South Lima Street, Englewood CO, 80112.
