Here's another idea to make great use of your off-season!

Tip #5
Start learning about next season’s research project topic – biomedical engineering.
(click the logo for the official challenge page)
(Click here: 2010 FLL season calendar). The 2010 Body Forward™ Challenge “will explore the cutting-edge world of Biomedical Engineering to discover innovative ways to repair injuries, overcome genetic predispositions, and maximize the body's potential, with the intended purpose of leading happier and healthier lives.”

Wow- that’s cool. Your team could be identifying and meeting experts in the biomedical field, planning field trips and searching out some other good resources, too! You can have a research meeting and the team can assign members some homework on the new challenge! Then everyone reports back to share their ideas. By working on some of the research ahead of time, you get ahead of the curve for September and it helps you get excited about the research topic!
