TETRIX® MAX Programmable Robotics Set

SKU: W43053
A Pitsco Exclusive

Description

The TETRIX® MAX Programmable Robotics Set contains the PRIZM® Robotics Controller and the building elements needed for students to engineer, code, and test solutions using real-world robotics technology. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware to create autonomous robots, this set is complete with two sensors and a programming guide that introduces the basics of coding through a series of hands-on projects.

If you’re looking to create a blended virtual/hands-on learning experience with your robotics class, check out the TETRIX Virtual Robotics simulation software.

“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

“I’ve built robots before, but this is my first time using [TETRIX]. I like how it is more complicated than the ones I usually do. It makes me think more.”

– Avery, student, Thomas Jefferson Independent Day School, Joplin, Missouri

“[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)
