Hi I am a coach of a FLL team and my year 11 has a FRC team at school - I have been trying to set it up so she can program at home in the virtual world - I have installed inventor and looked at a few tutorials - I have a couple of questions Is there a library of parts so that we do not have to create everything from scratch are there any demo robots I can load Then after I get a robot how do I upload it to the first virtual world if someone would like to contact me about this it would be much appreciated.
