At Pitsco Education, as we celebrate a new year, we also celebrate a new Pitsco Big Book catalog! The 2018 Big Book includes exciting new products as well as activities, curriculum, and solutions to serve educators.
Let’s dive into the new products highlighted in the Big Book! Two of our new products are totally customizable and easy to set up – we can all appreciate that, right?
Racing Made EZ
For our racing fans out there, check out the new EZ Track Raceway, a 20-meter track made up of high-strength PVC sections that can easily slide together with joints that slightly elevate the track off the ground. The 20 one-meter sections can be used to create one long lane or a dual-lane setup for racing.
The EZ Track Raceway works with dragsters, mousetrap vehicles, solar cars, bottle racers – basically anything with wheels that you can race! And it’s compatible with our timing systems, such as the EZ Start Raceway, Impulse G3 Race System, and the Dual Lane Race Timer. The track can be easily disassembled and stacked for storage, which makes racing in the classroom a breeze!
Robotics Competitions in Your Classroom
For our robotics friends, we now offer a classroom solution for robotics competitions: the TETRIX® MAX Competition in a Box! This package consists of a guide that introduces students to robotics competitions, numerous robotics components, and a highly customizable (YES!) arena system. That’s right, robotics educators, you can now bring the competition into your classroom!
With the 10 ' x 10' arena, you can configure many different layouts depending on the focus of your competitions. The arena system is easy to set up, and students can help with the construction. The Competition in a Box comes with more than 45 hours of curriculum activities for both R/C and autonomous robotics. The activities are open ended, enabling students to design and build their own robots while incorporating the engineering design process to solve each challenge.
