Description

Want three robotics curriculum units? This package provides everything necessary to incrementally implement TETRIX® PRIME Robotics: Remote Control, TETRIX PRIME Robotics: Autonomous, and TETRIX Robotics: Automation Manufacturing, which combine for nine weeks of robotics.

Curriculum for each unit 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 a culminating real-world challenge

Programming activities now utilize the TETRIX PULSE Robotics Controller!

“For school districts . . . already engaged in a robotics and computer literacy curriculum, the TETRIX PRIME/PULSE combo neatly fills the niche between elementary school graphic programming with tightly controlled hardware builds and upper-division high school text programming with builds limited only by the imagination.”

– Ron Wright, retired teacher, Camas, Washington

“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

“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
