“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

“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

“[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)
