TETRIX® PRIME Robotics: Autonomous STEM Unit

A Pitsco Exclusive
Type: Curriculum Titles/Courses and Units Line: TETRIX PRIME Ages: 12+

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.

This three-week unit comes with 12 starter sets. During the unit, students will:

  • Work in teams of two to three students.
  • Begin using R/C control and progress to autonomous operation.
  • Use the PRIME R/C Starter Set, additional controller, and sensors set to program a robot to complete tasks.
  • Learn the science behind how each of the sensors functions and how to program them to complete various tasks.
  • Learn to program the robot using ArduBlock and Arduino software.
  • Complete activities to build programming skills to control the robot and interact with sensors.
  • Complete a challenge to finish using the skills learned from the activities after each set of activities.
  • Complete guided activities and data sheets in the logbook that have students gather data for evaluation and improvement of their robot.

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.
