“There are so many different facets to the [TETRIX] robot. Students learn about electronics – putting the motherboard and the servos in the right spot. They learn about mechanics and mechanical engineering – put the wrong piece in the wrong way and the robot isn’t going to work. They can even take it a step further, adding modules to the robots so students can program their robots to do simple tasks.”

– Sergeant First Class Geoffrey Allen, Massachusetts Army National Guard, recruiting and retention battalion, Bedford, MA

“The PRIME building elements are easier to use, the connectors are larger, and the components are less prone to coming apart under stress. This encourages students to brainstorm more responses to challenges more quickly.”

– 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)
