The TETRIX® + myRIO Control Board Adapter is designed to easily connect TETRIX Motor Controllers to the NI myRIO. It also contains a built-in logic-level shifting circuit, Grove sensor-family connections, a Gnd expansion port, a 34-pin myRIO I/O expansion port, a +3.3 V expansion port, and a +5 V expansion port.
Combining the quick prototyping capabilities of the TETRIX® PRIME parts with the strength and ruggedness of the MAX parts, this unit focuses on activities and builds that might be used in manufacturing plants. Using an Arduino board and Arduino with ArduBlock software along with various sensors, students program the computer to accomplish tasks that might normally be found in a manufacturing environment. By combining parts from the two products, students build quick prototypes with the strength to accomplish automated activities that address STEM standards.
This three-week unit comes with 12 starter sets. During the unit, students will:
Correlations to Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Math and Language Arts Standards, and ITEEA technology standards are included. This unit serves 24 students, and add-ons are available for classes larger than 24.
Using the TETRIX® PRIME R/C Starter Set and adding sensors and an Arduino UNO controller, this unit focuses on creating a robot to complete tasks without operator input. Using an Arduino board and ArduBlock software along with Ultrasonic and Line Finder sensors, students write programs to complete various tasks that increase in complexity. Students use PRIME parts to quickly prototype and test different configurations and overcome additional obstacles. STEM standards are addressed with the engaging activities provided in this unit.
The principles of building a remote-controlled robot and using this robot to complete various engaging challenges are the focus of this STEM Unit. The TETRIX® PRIME R/C Starter Set is used for the basic building parts for students to construct various robots and complete challenges while addressing science, technology, engineering, math, and language arts standards. The PRIME building system enables students to quickly prototype a variety of robots, test them, and engineer them for improved performance.

For a better understanding of hydraulics and construction machines, look no further than Pitsco’s Backhoe. The backhoe uses hydraulic syringes to move the axes. Four controls are constructed from the syringes to imitate the basic controls of a real-life backhoe. A single student can operate all the controls, or a group of four can operate the controls as a team. With the shovel on the end of the backhoe, students can get a feel for how large construction machines work!
