The TETRIX® MAX R/C Getting Started Package offers the ultimate remote-controlled robotics experience. Teams of four work to design fully functioning remote-controlled robots, with each student group having access to both a TETRIX MAX R/C Robotics Set and a TETRIX MAX Expansion Set. The included curriculum materials, Instructional Build DVD for TETRIX MAX Robotics, and Engineering Design Loop Poster Set provide an added bonus to the builder’s guides.
Intended for use with the TETRIX® MAX R/C Robotics Set* (41990), the TETRIX MAX Engineering Mobile Robotics Teacher’s Guide applies students’ creativity to the field of robotics, helping them explore engineering, simple machines, torque, and power through a series of hands-on activities.
Delivered as spiral-bound notebook.
*TETRIX MAX R/C Robotics Set is sold separately.
Intended for use with the TETRIX® MAX Programmable (43053) or Dual-Control (43054) Robotics Sets*, the TETRIX PRIZM™ Coding Essentials Teacher’s Guide enables teachers to deliver engaging robotics lessons that challenge students to take their engineering and coding knowledge to the next level. Designed to build student confidence and generate enthusiasm for the fields of programming, engineering, and robotics, the curriculum delivers more than 60 hours of standards-based, project-based activities and related assessment materials.
*TETRIX MAX Programmable and Dual-Control Robotics Sets sold separately.
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.
