Platform for classes in Robotics & STEM
Integrated Robotics & STEM classes could be extremely difficult for the teacher to organize. We support the teacher and the participating students. With the platform we provide content & infrastructure for conducting classes, preparing for competitions and learing in class or at home. As kits we currently use LEGO Mindstorms EV3/NXT, VEX, Tetrix, Arduino.
What to build

I was told about this website by another team and they used it so well that eventually after learning all the ins and outs at FLL level they are now an FTC team.
My team also benefited from the videos and I will be definitely pushing it to the new teams. Though I haven’t used it in the recent few months, the one thing that could improve is the search function. We had been trying to learn gears and it took a few tries to find the right video.
Overall it’s a great resource and I hope you will continue to see more and more people use it. Thanks so much!!

My son aged out of the program and I'm not coaching anymore. Thank you for the past few years!
His team did very well!

As a complete novice who had been asked to help a group of girl guides compete in a tomorrows engineers ev3 competition in partnership with the Royal Air Force celebrating 100 years. I was recommended to look at the website for advice and had come across numerous intro videos on YouTube, initially I was a little sceptical at the sheer volume and detail included on the website but quickly realised how structured the content was so opted for plan a, a monthly subscription which allowed access to most of the sites functionality.
I guided the girls thru the preliminary stages and into the final at Birmingham Big Bang coming a very creditable 22 out of 44/teams, most of which comprised dedicated stem teachers and students 15 and 16 years old.
I have subsequently opted for a yearly subscription to allow me to help the girls progress to the fll league and develop further building and programming skills as this allows access to more structured courses which can be easily adapted to suit the needs of my team who are younger girls.
Many people have commented that it can at times be difficult to understand the commentators, I have not found 5his a problem and subtitles available to clarify. A short mention for Kiril on the tawk helpline who was courteous and efficient quickly resolving my enquiry.

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

- Hello, would you be able to comment on whether your AccurateTurnin block uses 1 or 2 Gyro sensors? Also, it would be great if you could post a video sometime that vies a high level description of this Block. I would like the kids to understand the sw they are using. thanks!
- hi Joe. thanks for the feedback - we are thinking of doing a video tutorial describing it we just need some time
- great. Keep up the great work, it's been an amazing resource for a rookie coach
