The TeRK project aims to make educational robotics accessible to a large community of college and pre-college students as well as home and hobby robot enthusiasts. To this end TeRK includes the development of affordable robot designs that can be built with hand tools and commercially available off-the-shelf parts. TeRK also includes the development and evaluation of a library of curriculum to accompany these robots; development of a robot embedded electronics package; open-source software libraries; and a web community where curriculum, software, and robot designs can be readily exchanged.
Please note that the Qwerk product line has been discontinued.
The Qwerk will be replaced by the VEXPro, which is due for commercial release in late 2010.
