TETRIX® PRIME Robotics: Remote Control STEM 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.

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

  • Work in teams of two students.
  • Use the PRIME R/C Starter Set with additional parts to assemble robots that will be used to demonstrate gear ratios, levers, and mechanical advantage.
  • Complete activities to build skills in using gears to perform specific tasks such as speed up the movement of the robot, slow down the movement of the robot, make control easier, lift a heavier load, or raise an object higher.
  • Receive a challenge to complete using the skills learned after each of the three activities. Each challenge culminates with a competition among students with their robots.
  • Complete guided activities and a data sheet included in a logbook that has them 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.
