This Tetrix Kit, used extensively by SkillsUSA, consists of heavy-duty, aircraft-grade aluminum elements, powerful drive motors, and wireless cameras. The event challenges competitors to engineer a robot which can navigate a unique obstacle course with the objective of finding and removing an object within a specified time. Our mobile lab is custom-built and adaptable to any group size or robotic familiarity. Recognizing that no two districts or curricula are identical, we designed this set to be usable by any sized group with any possible time considerations. We can allow for days of in-depth design and construction or simply allow students to navigate our courses with pre-built machines.
