What should my team do to get started?

Step 1: Register (Registration is now closed for the 2013/2014 Real World Design Challenge)

Step 2: Student Survey - Please have parents or guardians of participating students review the parent information form and the students complete the following survey.

Step 3: Download the software applications that will be used for this year's challenge

Step 4: The easiest way to get your team prepared for this challenge is to review the RWDC Coaches Handbook.  The handbook will outline the details for this challenge and what your team is expected complete.

 

 

Step 5: As with previous years, the success of a team to solve the given challenge is through the partnership of a mentor.  To help your team find a mentor, the RWDC committee has authored a mentor spreadsheet divided by the mentor's area of expertise.  Please review the spreadsheet and contact a mentor to get started.  Contact a mentor as soon as possible.

Step 6: Complete the Training Resources

Step 7: Access PTC Community and build networks with fellow team members, ask technical and support questions, review discussion board, blogs, documents and videos.
