Diane Maltby, December 2017
For years, I searched for some advanced training in programming EV3 robots. I looked all across the United States and could never find anything except training for beginner users. I thought I would just try and teach myself, but you know how that goes, it was really difficult to make the time and put in the effort. When I did give it a try, without any support I just became frustrated and confused.
I was so excited to receive an email from the folks that put together FLL casts and learn that they were offering an online advanced EV3 robotics training course. I found it a bit ironic that the class I had been looking for was coming from the other side of the world and was very grateful that Aleks was willing to get up in the middle of the night to teach the class.
The class was everything I had hoped for and more. It was challenging and demanding and pushed me beyond what I thought I could do. Through it all, I felt well-supported. By the end of the Training course, not only had I learned more than I expected, I'd made friends with other EV3 programmers in the states and one from Bulgaria.
Thank-you, Diane Maltby
