The Keter heavy-duty, cantilever-style organizer opens up to reveal 27 removable bins, perfect for storing TETRIX® PRIME or MAX spare parts and elements. Features a strong, comfortable horizontal handle for carrying heavy loads and a lid designed to keep parts in place when closed. Made of durable resin with metal handle and latches, and built-in legs for stability when in the open position, this chest will withstand years of use. Measures 22" x 12-1/8" x 6-5/8".


This screwdriver is an ideal tool for mounting TETRIX® MAX and PRIME servo motors to mounts and for assembling the PRIME Gripper Kit. Features an end with a No. 1 Phillips drive and an end with a 1/8" flat head.


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.


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.


Packaging is a part of any product we buy. With the Packaging Design Maker Project, students can become familiar with packaging design and techniques. The project includes five Super Boxmakers, a Dr. Zoon Packaging Design Video, and card stock. For convenience, the project also comes with labels, a bin, and a bin prep sheet for storage and organization.


The TETRIX® PRIME Class Pack serves 12 teams of two students, offering each pair of students their own TETRIX PRIME R/C Starter Set to work with. Using the sets and the instructions from the included builder’s guide, students work collaboratively to engineer fully functioning, remote-controlled robots.


  • 12 TETRIX PRIME R/C Starter Sets each containing:
    • 298 building elements plus Gripper Kit
    • Gamepad-style, four-channel wireless controller
    • 4 servo motors (2 standard and 2 continuous rotation)
    • Rechargeable battery pack and charger
    • On/off switch and assembly tools
    • Printed setup and builder’s guides along with activity accessories


Buying a new gamepad system when only the receiver is lost or damaged is wasteful and expensive. We’ve solved that problem by offering this replacement 2.4 GHz receiver that comes with built-in mounting tabs that align with the TETRIX® hole pattern.

Please note this version of the R/C receiver is compatible with only the 40239 gray wireless gamepad and is not compatible with previous versions of the joystick controller.


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.


Pitsco’s 3-D Printing: Vehicle Engineering Package enables students to create prototype components and other parts, which is rapidly becoming a normal part of the engineering process.

This package contains the Afinia H400 3-D Printer, a small, simpler yet affordable 3-D printer perfect for saving some space. The H400 features WiFi connection, touch screen controls, 0.15 mm layer thickness printing capability, and more. The printing space for the H400 is 4.7" x 4.7" x 4.7".

This package includes:

  • 3-D printer, Afinia H400 model (1).
  • 3-D software for PC and Mac.
  • 3-D Printing: Vehicle Engineering Curriculum.
  • Handling tools.
  • ABS filament.
  • Competition catalog (5).
  • 3-D Printing: Vehicle Engineering Class Pack (axles, wheels, motors, and so on).
  • 3-D Printing: Vehicle Engineering Notebooks (250).

No assembly is needed for the printer, but it does require the use of a wall outlet and a computer. System Requirements: PC – Windows XP/Vista/7/8/10; Mac OSX.


Based on contemporary building techniques, these kits consist of a series of interconnecting modular components that permit you to design, build, and modify multiple structures.

ARCKIT 60 is ideal for creating smaller structures, student projects, interior designs, and home extensions and for learning the basics. This is also a great gift for budding architects.

ARCKIT 120 is perfect for light professional use and versatile enough to create a range of structures.

ARCKIT 240 is the pro’s choice: large enough to create a diverse range of structures of varying sizes with enough components to really explore designs and ideas.

Options Available
From $144.00

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!


Building an EZ Trebuchet is a great activity for elementary students to complete. This elementary guide is written for Grades 3-5. With these fun activities, students grasp a variety of subjects including forces, energy, variables, and tons more.

The EZ Trebuchet Elementary STEM Activity Guide contains the NGSS and CCSSM addressed; teacher and student instructions for math, science, and engineering activities; assessment questions; and student pages. This guide contains two guided inquiry lessons and a culminating engineering challenge for students to apply concepts learned through the inquiry lessons.

Equipment and materials needed to complete guide activities include the EZ Trebuchet Kits, computers, scissors, string, tape measures, targets, and standard classroom tools and materials.
