An educator's take: The NEW TETRIX® PULSE™ Robotics Controller

In 2015, we introduced you to the TETRIX® PRIME building system, an affordable building system for students and builders ages 12 and up. It's designed for easy building and disassembling of a prototype in a single class period and allows for multiple design iterations quickly. Formerly, the robots' actions and movements were controlled with a wireless controller.

Now, there's a new way to robot!

We have officially released the new TETRIX PULSE™ Robotics Controller. YES! It's prime time for this system to have an autonomous option! 

Aaron Maurer, the STEM lead for the Mississippi Bend AEA, the founder of a nonprofit called 212 STEAM Labs, Inc., and Pitsco TAG member, was provided advance access to PULSE. We asked him to share his initial thoughts on the product and why it's a great fit for middle school. Hear what he had to say in these three quick videos.
