"Linz Craig is an exceptional and outstanding individual who is passionate about education and technology."
"...all the teachers present deemed him a master teacher."
"Linz is a skilled, highly creative person who has an eye for what will and will not work in a classroom setting. His teaching style and class material set a high level of quality for what would become the department of education in 2011."
"...a key component to the future of education."
"...fostered a level of creativity I have not seen in a while."
"At the end of the day we had to practically drag our high school students out of the classroom."
"Linz is respectful, trustworthy and will bend over backwards to see that the job gets done correctly."
"Working with Linz, we’ve escalated our product development goals and rapidly developed prototypes for farm automation and the entertainment industry."
"Linz’s passion for education and technology proved invaluable in forming strong relationships with educators throughout the US and beyond."
"Core literacy including interactive engagement with technology, collaboration, and team problem solving were skillfully woven into their lesson...."
"...helped show my students the close relationship between creativity, electronics, and computer programming...."
"He helped significantly increase the knowledge and skills of our in-house team to a level that we would not have been able to achieve on our own."
"Linz has an extensive history of workshops and events at educational institutes (e.g., New York University, Tufts University, University of Colorado, Colorado State University, M.I.T., Tufts University, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, Stetson University, University of Arkansas, East Carolina University, University of Massachusetts, Hampshire College) as well as K12 schools and informal learning centers such as libraries and museums (e.g., Denver Museum of Nature and Science, Science Museum Oklahoma Network, Arkansas Museum of Discovery, Science Museum of Minnesota, Union Station Science City, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art)."
"The instructor Linz Craig was a great presenter. His assistants, Nick, Bobby and Eli were very helpful and knowledgeable. We each received a SparkFun Inventor's Kit for our Introduction to Arduino for free; it doesn't get any better than this."
"After participating in SparkFun’s workshop, I plan to conduct a STEM summer camp for all of our incoming freshman."
"I have already been working on some of my own do-it-yourself projects, but this class swayed the direction of my thinking of future projects. I have been doing more mechanical/physical projects but this opened me to electronics. I have an Arduino but I have been able to do with it more in the last two days after the class than I could for the weeks before."
"I work at a science and technology center, so having introduction/working knowledge of this kind of content is important. We need to be able to make visitors aware of this kind of software and hardware."
"The presenter made it possible for all students (myself included) to learn about electronics. I want to get a kit and do more. ALL YOUR STAFF WAS EXCELLENT--- KUDOS TO ALL"
"With the knowledge I gained in the class I'm now much more likely to take on projects requiring microcontrollers."
"I learned SO much, and I have never had this much fun in a library training session, EVER."
"Keeping 4th and 5th graders attention focused for an entire school day is not an easy task at all, yet no problems...."
"Dear Lindsay, My name is Eric Langhorst. I teach American history, broadcasting and technology at Discovery Middle School in Liberty, Missouri. I was a participant at your educational tour stop in Kansas City at Union Station - November 7, 2013. I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for my experience at the workshop. For the past several months I have attempted to learn more about the maker movement and coding in general. The day at Union Station was a perfect opportunity for me to learn more about what I think is a key component to the future of education. The pace of the workshop was outstanding. Your analogies and examples helped clarify some topics that were difficult for me to grasp. It was obvious that you have teaching experience and used a variety of ways to explain these concepts. It was a relief for me to know that I would have time throughout the day to build, play and explore the kit. Often the professional development that teachers receive is a “sit and get” and the teacher must then find time later to go back and attempt to practice these skills without any support. I appreciated the time to work through several of the circuits and then the challenges to change the code and modify. I am so grateful that you made a stop in Kansas City on your tour and I hope to someday have another opportunity to attend one of your workshops. Thanks for being teacher friendly and truly being about sharing what you know and helping education."
