TETRIX® PRIME Robotics: Autonomous STEM Unit

A Pitsco Exclusive
$7,995.00 (USD)
Availability: Order now and we will deliver when available.


Using the TETRIX® PRIME building system and adding sensors and the PULSE™ controller, this unit focuses on creating a robot to complete tasks without operator input. Using the TETRIX Ardublockly software along with ultrasonic and line-follower sensors, students write programs to complete various tasks that increase in complexity. Students use PRIME parts to quickly prototype and test different configurations and overcome additional obstacles. STEM standards are addressed with the engaging activities provided in this unit.

Curriculum features:

  • 15 hours, or fifteen 50-minute class periods, of hands-on activities with scope and sequence
  • Middle and high school correlations to Next Generation Science, Common Core Math and Language Arts, and ITEEA standards
  • Programming with PULSE controller using the graphic-based TETRIX Ardublockly along with sensor integration
  • Extensive coverage of mechanisms and mechanical systems concepts
  • Application of STEM knowledge and 21st-century skills
  • Progressive series of activities with culminating challenge

Add-ons are available for classes larger than 24.

STEM Unit now uses TETRIX PULSE Robotics Controller!

“One thing that is great about TETRIX is that we can incorporate Arduino into them easily with little or no issues. We use a lot of Arduino in our robotic classes, and TETRIX allows the easy integration with Arduino into the robotic kits. The new TETRIX PULSE units have been a big plus to our robotic programs.”

– Eric Franz, CTE technical support, Yakima (WA) School District

“A hallmark of Pitsco Education is its attention to curriculum materials and staff development for all levels of teaching, and the curriculum materials for PRIME/PULSE are no exception. They guide the teacher and students carefully through all the beginning stages of robotics building, coding, and engineering and can take the intermediate student independently well into more advanced concepts if the district’s scope and sequence permit.”

– Ron Wright, retired teacher, Camas, Washington

“It really is realistic and that’s, I think, one of the main benefits to using the TETRIX PRIME system is that it really did give our kids exposure to more realistic constraints.”

– Jonathan Gaines, instructor, University of South Florida/Bulls Engineering Youth Experiences (Bulls-EYE)
