TETRIX® PRIME delivers in classroom and competition; presales begin June 16

PITTSBURG, Kan., June 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Pitsco Education's latest innovation is poised to transform STEM robotics in the classroom as well as in national and international competitions. TETRIX® PRIME is a revolutionary new robotics building system designed to teach various STEM concepts without the construction complexities inherent in other building systems. PRIME is engineered to be simple and intuitive, enabling students to construct and modify robots easily and quickly.

Making the robust PRIME Building System unique is a patented "quick rivet" snap fastener for fast and secure assembly. In addition, parts can be connected with a specialized thumbscrew that provides additional strength and durability, making robots sturdy enough for even the most demanding competitions.

"Quality, durability, and ease of use were our primary focal points when creating TETRIX PRIME," said Pitsco Education Research & Development Manager Paul Uttley. "Students want their robots to be as strong as possible, yet be relatively easy to assemble and modify on the fly. Our goal is to make all of this possible with TETRIX PRIME."

The PRIME Starter Set includes a gamepad-style, four-channel wireless controller for easy operation of the motors and servos that bring robots to life. A builder's guide enables students to begin construction on any of three hero models within minutes of opening the box. Additional part packs expand design possibilities, and compatibility with various programming platforms (National Instruments' myRIO, LEGO® Education's NXT and EV3, Arduino, and Raspberry Pi, among others) empowers students to engineer robots capable of performing whatever their minds imagine.

TETRIX PRIME Building System elements are designed to connect with existing TETRIX MAX components, providing an ideal continuum of classroom robot integration and learning. All TETRIX building system elements are compatible with kits and sets used in FIRST® Tech Challenge, SkillsUSA Robotics: Urban Search & Rescue, and World Robotics Olympiad Open and College categories of competitions.
