The Arduino microprocessor specializes in making electronic projects more accessible to everyday people. This text focuses on using the Arduino for building and operating autonomous robots. Parts 1 and 2 lay a solid foundation for using the microprocessor with the Teachbot and making mechanical and electrical components. Part 3 shows the many possibilities with the building and running of robots that are musical, remote controlled, have 10 articulated segments to slither like a snake, and more.

Combining the quick prototyping capabilities of the TETRIX® PRIME parts with the strength and ruggedness of the MAX parts, this unit focuses on activities and builds that might be used in manufacturing plants. Using an Arduino board and Arduino with ArduBlock software along with various sensors, students program the computer to accomplish tasks that might normally be found in a manufacturing environment. By combining parts from the two products, students build quick prototypes with the strength to accomplish automated activities that address STEM standards.
This three-week unit comes with 12 starter sets. During the unit, students will:
Correlations to Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core Math and Language Arts Standards, and ITEEA technology standards are included. This unit serves 24 students, and add-ons are available for classes larger than 24.
Using the TETRIX® PRIME R/C Starter Set and adding sensors and an Arduino UNO controller, this unit focuses on creating a robot to complete tasks without operator input. Using an Arduino board and ArduBlock software along with Ultrasonic and Line Finder sensors, students write programs to complete various tasks that increase in complexity. Students use PRIME parts to quickly prototype and test different configurations and overcome additional obstacles. STEM standards are addressed with the engaging activities provided in this unit.
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 Starter 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.

In the Engineering Design & CAD course, students are introduced to computer-aided drafting and learn how to use it to design engineering projects. Working through the Introduction to Engineering Design with SolidWorks guide, students build a solid foundation in how to use the SolidWorks CAD program. They become familiar with the interface, understand the software’s function and how to draw and create parts and assemblies, and complete several exercises and projects. In Unit 2, students model a TETRIX® part and then use it to build and model a motorized chassis with wheels. Then, they design and build a robot that moves billiard balls to goals and another that completes a timed maze challenge. These activities help students understand how to apply the SolidWorks concepts and skills they have learned.
After learning how to design with the SolidWorks computer-aided drafting program in Unit 1, students make use of these practical skills in the Model TX activity. Here, young designers create a digital version of a physical model they built earlier using the TETRIX Building System.
This wickedly inventive guide shows you how to program and build a variety of projects with the Arduino microcontroller development system. Covering Windows, Mac, and Linux platforms, this book gets you up to speed with the simplified C programming you need to know. No prior programming experience necessary.
