Description

The principles of building a remote-controlled robot and using this robot to complete various engaging challenges are the focus of this STEM Unit. The TETRIX® PRIME R/C Robotics Set is used for the basic building parts for students to construct various robots and complete challenges while addressing science, technology, engineering, math, and language arts standards. The PRIME building system enables students to quickly prototype a variety of robots, test them, and engineer them for improved performance.

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
  • Extensive coverage of mechanisms and mechanical systems concepts
  • Application of STEM knowledge and 21st-century skills

Add-ons are available for classes larger than 24.

“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

“TETRIX systems are easy for our students to use. Also they are well made and hold together better then a lot of the other robotic kits that we use. TETRIX makes a great product that is well built to last longer than our other robotic kits that we purchase.”

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

“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)
