    TETRIX Robotics for Educators I

    This intensive two-day program weaves together robotics concepts and practices with STEM education topics. The robotics components include TETRIX Prime robot building and programming using Scratch software. A culminating task will require participants to apply their learning toward the design and programming of a robot that competes in a Robotics challenge. The STEM education component includes a review of STEM standards related to robotics, application of the engineering design process, and discussions of possible classroom scenarios related to robotics and robotics challenges. Educators will be working in small teams.

    TETRIX Robotics for Educators II

    Tetrix Robotics for Educators II is a two day event that provides participants with profound instruction on robotics engineering topics (force analysis, mechanics, power transmission, pneumatics, sensors, DC motors, programming, control theory, and more) as well as time to apply the learning toward the design, construction, and programming of a TETRIX MAX robot. Daily block will be devoted to STEM education topics, during which participants will review STEM standards, develop a robotics-specific rubric, discuss diversity in STEM, and develop an introductory unit on robotics. The PD will culminate in a robotics tournament. Educators will be working in small teams.
