Specifications

“We appreciated the strength of TETRIX and the material’s enduring quality. Whether we were modifying the robot or practicing repeatedly, the structure and pieces were unchanged. Moreover, the number of pieces allowed us to design and construct a robot that could perform according to the given challenge.”

– Terdsak Intachot, coach of winning Thailand team, 2017 WRO ARC

“We get students who say, ‘I can’t do math’ or ‘I can’t write very well.’ When they program their robot, we tell them they just used math. When they do their write-up for the competitions, we tell them, ‘You just wrote a paper.’ We connect our students to real-world applications through robotics.”

– Will Sarett, director of career and technical education, Yakima (WA) School District
