TETRIX® PRIME Robotics: Automation Manufacturing STEM Unit

A Pitsco Exclusive
$8,225.00 (USD)
Availability: Order now and we will deliver when available.


Combining the quick prototyping capabilities of the TETRIX® PRIME building system with the strength and ruggedness of the MAX parts, this unit focuses on activities and builds that might be used in manufacturing plants. Using a PULSE™ controller and TETRIX Ardublockly software along with various sensors, students program a work cell robot to accomplish tasks that might normally be found in a manufacturing environment. By combining parts from the two products, students build quick prototypes with the strength to accomplish automated activities that address STEM standards.

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 real-world manufacturing challenge

Add-ons are available for classes larger than 24.

    “The new TETRIX PULSE units have been a big plus to our robotic programs. The ease of programming the TETRIX PULSE and having everything in one unit to program the robot is fantastic. We look forward to adding more PULSE units to our 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

    “Many of our students are beginners, and the various parts make it easier for them to do quick builds. The varied parts and the instruction guide [that comes with TETRIX sets] lead them in learning how to build a robot, and the students can customize their robots easily because of the standard holes on the channel bars and plates.”

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