We love your videos. I am a subscriber and we are using them to help as a virtual coach for our FLL team of 8 11 year old girls.We looked for a coach in Boston that could take the girls to the next level, but could only find people who could provide coaching for the basics. When we found your videos, it was like we found a virtual coach that could take the girls to the next level! Thank you!
Wow!! and Wow!! You guys are amazing! This is so helpful. I have shared it with my team and with Jen Velez, the FLL coordinator of our state at Arizona State University. Thanks again for your help, it will make our season that much more productive and fun!
I think your site is extremely helpful for the kids to go through the videos and get ideas especially the young kids who are just starting. The construction explanation and also the programming explanation has been really helpful and easy to understand the reasoning behind why it is done that way. Your videos and the site has been really helpful, I have been subscribing for more than a year now. Great Job.
I'd love to see some examples of a robot photos/videos and your rationale to judge. Love your site.
That is Awe*Some...I will be sure to let other teams know... Thanks for your hard work! My students love the videos and get excited when they learn something new, like how to use the rubber bands. It's been very helpful in keeping the learning exciting. Michelle
Thank you. Finding your website is a blessing for me.I wish I have seen your video earlier so my students will have more time to make innovations of their robot for the FLL qualifying rounds. Your website is very informative. It is absolutely useful. Thank you for allowing me to view it. Currently, I have one team who will participate in the FLL. Our preliminary competition will be on January 31. We are done with the project but since we have limited background about programming and using Lego NXT mindstorm we have not completed all the challenges. Every time we test the robot, their movement change. There are times we got it then, when we repeat it it move different. So, when I saw your website and watch the video on preparing robot for a competition I understand what is happening.
I first found your website through one of your free videos. I was looking for a way to improve my FLL team's buidling skills, as well as looking for a new way to teach them to approach the table missions. We usually watch YouTube videos, but cannot really make out the details of the robots and certainly cannot understand how the more successful ones are built. I have found your site to be extremely helpful.
Thank you so much! Don't ever take this video off please! You have no idea how many times i used it.
OMG Thank you so much! I spent two hours trying to get this to work but then I found this video and got it done in 15 minutes. I'm so happy right now :D
I watched your video and it was very informative. I am looking forward to see upcoming tutorials. I am FLL mentor and I give your resources to my students. Thank you for sharing.
Thank-you for your site. I’m a new coach to 4H robotics and FLL. (I’ve only ever used the NXT system as a data collector for science fair club.) I joined your site to get ideas about what the basic FLL Robot is and things I need to learn so that I can teach them to the kids. Your site is really great. I started with your directions on how to build a competition bot first. The basic episodes are a lot of help. The kids seem to learn a lot more from watching the videos than from reading several of the books that I have purchased for them. Hopefully, by the end of the season, the kids will have progressed into some of your pro episodes. Thanks again for sharing your knowledge. It gave us a great starting point and a fun look at what the future has in store for our club.
