Specifications

“We found that the [alternative metal robotics system] parts were not tough enough for the intense competition. TETRIX gives us strong enough parts to build our robots.”

– Thomas Lao, technology teacher, Macau Pui Ching Middle School, Macau, China

“We got our TETRIX kits, and [the students] were so excited. . . . They could do more things with TETRIX.”

– Jo Ray Van Vliet, former coach, RoboKnights, Pace Academy, Atlanta, GA

“We get students who say, ‘I can’t do math’ or ‘I can’t write very well.’ When they program their robot, we tell them they just used math. When they do their write-up for the competitions, we tell them, ‘You just wrote a paper.’ We connect our students to real-world applications through robotics.”

– Will Sarett, director of career and technical education, Yakima (WA) School District
