With more than 100 elements and growing, TETRIX® MAX is a flexible robotics system with endless design possibilities. With MAX, students can create robots that are big and tough yet precise. Plus, using the PRIZM® controller means you can now autonomously control your robot using the Arduino Software (IDE) and a fully integrated, programmable brain developed specifically for the building system.
Using TETRIX MAX offers students the ability to use real-world tools to learn and apply the engineering design process while boosting problem-solving and critical-thinking skills. The comprehensive system and curriculum available enable educators to deliver an evergreen STEM program that builds career-readiness skills for students – whatever direction their education and career paths might take them.
Get the best of both worlds and take hands-on STEM learning to the next level with the TETRIX MAX Dual-Control Robotics Set. Complete with the PRIZM Robotics Controller and wireless gamepad and receiver, this set comes with everything needed to create programmable or remote-controlled robots. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware necessary to engineer, test, drive, or code robots, this set is complete with a builder’s guide and a programming guide that introduces the basics of building and coding through a series of hands-on projects.
Add this expansion set to your TETRIX collection to build bigger and more complex robots and complete more challenging engineering projects. This set includes 637 building elements and comes complete with a convenient storage bin.
The TETRIX MAX Programmable Robotics Set contains the PRIZM Robotics Controller and the building elements needed for students to engineer, code, and test solutions using real-world robotics technology. Designed to provide one student or a team of up to four students with the hardware to create autonomous robots, this set is complete with two sensors and a programming guide that introduces the basics of coding through a series of hands-on projects.
If you can dream up a design, you can build it with the TETRIX MAX Building System. TETRIX is a complete design system for students who are serious about engineering.
Featuring heavy-duty, aircraft-grade aluminum elements for construction, powerful drive motors, and expandable capabilities, TETRIX provides the ideal platform for creativity. Whether students want to build a basic square-chassis robot base with a remote control or incorporate other electronics (not included) to design a highly specific autonomous robot, this system is unlimited. Designed to provide one student or a team of students with the hardware to get started on a robotics or other build project, this starter set eliminates the worry that you might miss a needed part to finish the project.
Includes the comprehensive TETRIX MAX Builder’s Guide (hard copy and CD), a 190-page teacher’s resource packed with several model build instructions, safety information, resources, challenges, and more. Includes a variety ofTetrix Max; structural elements, DC motors, servos and hardware, gears, wheels, axles, tubing, flats and angles, and channels. It also includes a gamepad controller and batteries, rechargeable battery and charger, motor and servo controller board, and storage case with lid.

The TETRIX PRIZM Robotics Controller is a fully integrated, programmable brain for your bot that features a variety of motor, servo, encoder, and sensor ports with convenient connectors that enable you to control your robot's behavior like never before. This controller offers the best of both worlds – a learning tool that is powerful yet easy to use. With PRIZM you can take learning to new heights by creating robots that are smarter, more precise, and as real world as it gets.
The controller is specifically developed for use with theTetrix Max; building system and comes with programming support for theArduino Software (IDE), which is compatible with Windows, Mac OS X 10.7 or newer, and Linux devices that have a USB port.
The PRIZM Robotics Controller features:
The TETRIX MAX Dual-Control Class Pack serves six teams of four students, offering each group of students their own Dual-Control Robotics Set to work with. Using the sets and the instructions from the included builder’s guide, students work collaboratively to engineer and control both remote and autonomous-controlled robots.
1/8L Shaft Spacer Pack is handy when you need a little space between wheels, gears, and other elements on axles.
120T Gear is a step above kits and systems with plastic gears. These are made of heavy-duty aluminum and really stand up to wear and tear.
144mm Angle Beam features structural pieces with 90º angles and heavy-duty aluminum construction. Can be cut to custom lengths with a metal-cutting blade.
145MM Tube Pack is light and strong with tubes that can be used as long extensions. Made of heavy-duty aluminum, they can also be cut to custom lengths with a metal-cutting blade.
Hex stand-off posts; female/female, 6-32 thread. Four sizes available. Sold in packages of 12.
16 Tooth HUB Sprocket Pack is made from heavy-duty aluminum for maximum performance under heavy loads. TETRIX sprockets are available in three different ratios and designed to work with the 0.250" TETRIX steel chain. Sold in packages of two.
160mm Channel can also be cut to custom lengths with a metal-cutting blade.
288mm Channel are heavy-duty aluminum channel pieces that can be cut to custom lengths with a metal-cutting blade.
This screwdriver is an ideal tool for mountingTetrix Max; and PRIME servo motors to mounts and for assembling the PRIME Gripper Kit. Features an end with a No. 1 Phillips drive and an end with a 1/8" flat head.
3" Hub/Tire adds some mobility to your robot.
