The TETRIX® PRIZM™ Robotics Controller is a fully integrated, programmable brain for your bot that features a variety of motor, servo, encoder, and sensor ports with convenient connectors that enable you to control your robot's behavior like never before. This controller offers the best of both worlds – a learning tool that is powerful yet easy to use. With PRIZM you can take learning to new heights by creating robots that are smarter, more precise, and as real world as it gets.
The controller is specifically developed for use with the TETRIX MAX building system and comes with programming support for the Arduino Software (IDE), which is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X 10.7 or newer, and Linux devices that have a USB port.
The PRIZM Robotics Controller features:
This pack contains a line-tracker module that transmits a digital signal to the TETRIX® PRIZM™ Robotics Controller, enabling a robot to follow a black line on a white background or vice versa. The sensor consists of two parts: an IR-emitting LED and an IR-sensitive phototransistor. Comes with a mount, connecting sensor cable, and the hardware needed for attaching the sensor to the TETRIX hole pattern.
This pack contains a noncontact distance measurement module that works at 42 kHz to transmit a digital signal to the TETRIX® PRIZM™ Robotics Controller. The module detects the range of an object within 3 to 400 cm, enabling your robot to sense its surroundings. Comes with a mount, connecting sensor cable, and the hardware for attaching the sensor to the TETRIX hole pattern.
The TETRIX® MAX Dual-Control Class Pack serves six teams of four students, offering each group of students their own Dual-Control Robotics Set to work with. Using the sets and the instructions from the included builder’s guide, students work collaboratively to engineer and control both remote and autonomous-controlled robots.
The TETRIX® MAX Dual-Control Getting Started Package delivers a comprehensive classroom solution that offers the best of both worlds. Teams of four work to design and control both remote and programmable robots, with each student group having access to both a TETRIX MAX Dual-Control Robotics Set and a TETRIX MAX Expansion Set. The included curriculum materials and Engineering Design Loop Poster Set provide an added bonus to the builder’s guides.
Get the best of both worlds and take hands-on STEM learning to the next level with the TETRIX® MAX Dual-Control Robotics Set. Complete with the PRIZM™ Robotics Controller and wireless gamepad and receiver, this set comes with everything needed to create programmable or remote-controlled robots. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware necessary to engineer, test, drive, or code robots, this set is complete with a builder’s guide and a programming guide that introduces the basics of building and coding through a series of hands-on projects.

Improve your CO2 dragster program with the Scout 2.0, designed to measure frontal drag on CO2 dragsters. This new version of the wind tunnel has a modular motor controller for improved performance, a backlit LED display, USB port compatibility, and updated software for current operating systems. The Scout 2.0 also features the following:
Note: Additional shipping charges apply.
The wind is all around us blowing us here or there as it sees fit. In order to give students a better understanding of measuring wind velocity, try out Pitsco’s Anemometer. Students create their own anemometer, use instruments to calibrate it, and then use a personalized anemometer for wind-related experiments.
Prepare to get your wheels turning with the AP Dragster Maker Project. Students use the provided tools and their imaginations to create AP dragsters and test them with the AP Dragster Launcher. The project includes AP Dragster Pack, AP Dragster Launcher, and a hand pump. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.
