    Block Programmers Unite!!!

    Greetings from New Hampshire!

    If you are an FTC team, a coach or a mentor and you use the Blocks Programming tool to program your FTC robot, please sound off!

    If you are a Blocks Programming tool user, please respond to this thread and tell us your team number, your team name, and if you'd like your geographic region ("New Hampshire", "Beijing", "Sydney", "Hungary", etc.)!

    Thanks and welcome aboard!!!

    We actually did a NJ STEM Girls workshop on this and taught another team how to code using Block Programming (Oasis also from New Jersey)!

    Hi FTC9988.

    Here's a link to a tutorial that might be a good place to start:

    http://www.firstinspires.org/sites/d...ningmanual.pdf

    Also, I put some material online that includes some materials from an older workshop that we did with the Blocks programming tool in summer of 2016. The screen shots in the docs might be slightly out of date but the material might be helpful to learn how to use the blocks software.

    You can access the older training workshop material here:

    https://usfirst-my.sharepoint.com/pe...FeYu7ffINHuyy4

    Remember, the NSTA training material was made using an older version of the Blocks software so there might be some slight differences in the user interfaces on the current software.

    Welcome aboard!
