If you can dream up a design, you can build it with the TETRIX® Building System. TETRIX is a complete design system for students who are serious about engineering.

Featuring heavy-duty, aircraft-grade aluminum elements for construction, powerful drive motors, and expandable capabilities, TETRIX provides the ideal platform for creativity. Whether students want to build a basic square chassis robot base with a remote control or incorporate other electronics (not included) to design a highly specific autonomous robot, this system is unlimited.

Designed to provide one student or a team of students with the hardware to get started on a robotics or other build project, this starter set eliminates the worry that you might miss a needed part to finish the project.

Includes the comprehensive TETRIX Builders Guide, a 190-page teacher’s resource packed with several model build instructions, safety, resources, challenges, and more (comes printed and on a Windows CD). Includes a TETRIX Base Set, TETRIX DC Motor Speed Controller with Battery Holder, and four-channel R/C Controller. Requires eight AA batteries, sold separately.

$595.00

He’s traveled with will.i.am of The Black Eyed Peas and met celebrities like Ryan Seacrest. Now Pitsco’s Mr. Robot can be in your classroom, encouraging students to learn programming!

Standing at almost five feet tall, this humanoid robot can move forward and backward, move his shoulders and elbows, turn his head, laugh, and say “hello” and “thank you.” And while operating and watching Mr. Robot is fun, students can also use LabVIEW™ for LEGO® MINDSTORMS® software (not included) to program him to do specific sequences and dances.

Originally built for the FIRST® World Championship in 2011, Mr. Robot has gone on to become an ambassador for the TETRIX® Building System and for robotics education.

Built from TETRIX and LEGO components, Mr. Robot is durable and powered by two 12 V, 3,000 mAh NiMH battery packs. He comes with a TETRIX 12 V battery charger, an NXT Brick charger, a Logitech® USB game controller, a USB Bluetooth® dongle, and an operator’s guide. Dimensions: 58" x 22" x 18". Weight: 37.5 pounds.

Note: The robot’s eyes light up, but it does not come with lights on its body.
