Furthermore, we usually have veteran CADders do one on one with people who want to learn which from my experience is the best way to at least give those with zero experience a basis to do a project like a WCD or some kind of mechanism for the robot.
If I had to guess for this year, we're probably going to have vetern CADders teach the rookies the basics (like extrude cuts, boss/base, drawing, schematics, symmetry, etc.) and then have them do some kind of CAD project.
