Robot Virtual World with ROBOTC/Virtual Brick
This is a total newbie question, but I'm trying to figure out what would be needed to get an FLL class off the ground. Some of this stuff I'm coming across for the first time. Can someone explain to me why/if it's necessary to have the Virtual Brick? Would it not be sufficient to just use RVW with the ROBOTC IDE? Is the Virtual Brick more for just programming directly on the brick itself? Is that recommended over programming just using the ROBOTC IDE? Am I totally just asking nonsensical questions?
Any help would be appreciated. I'm also looking into curriculum if anyone has any ideas on that. Came across some stuff from Carnegie Mellon which looks promising. I might post this question separately.
