Sorter Build | PRIME with EV3
Sorter Build | PRIME with EV3
Students will expand on their experience from the Getting Started Activities. Combine TETRIX PRIME and EV3 to build a sorting robot with an articulated arm and gripper that can rotate 360 degrees. Then they can advance to program it to move the gripper to a known position to pick up and grasp an object and, ultimately, complete a program that performs a sorting action to a different location, based on information obtained from a color sensor. Students will find all the details the curriculum’s first Complete Activity. Find out more: https://www.pitsco.com/EV3.

Security Door | PRIME with EV3
Security Door | PRIME with EV3
With TETRIX PRIME and EV3 components, students will build a unique stationary robot that acts as a security door with a two-phase access procedure. The objective is to complete a program that will wait for access to be demanded through the interaction or sensors and then to wait and respond based on sensor data by activating one or both phases of the procedure. Details found in the curriculum’s final Complete Activity. Find out more: https://www.pitsco.com/EV3.
