“[With TETRIX] there’s a long history of curriculum, example robots, YouTube videos, and all kinds of stuff for them to go draw from for ideas.”

– Clarissa Belbas, president of ASSiST (Advancing STEM for Students in South Texas)

“I’m quite pleased with not only the durability of the TETRIX kits, but how much potential they seem to have.”

– Joe Slifka, TAG member, technology teacher, LaBrae High School, Leavittsburg, Ohio

“I’ve built robots before, but this is my first time using [TETRIX]. I like how it is more complicated than the ones I usually do. It makes me think more.”

– Avery, student, Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School, Joplin, Missouri
