English abstract:
Robotics kits are spreading out in the market, becoming
more convenient, but more is required to determine their
impact on educational activities, such us participants´ perceptions
and factors that could affect the activity. This paper presents an
educational activity, which was designed with two main goals in
mind. i) Determine if there is any impact of the programming
language used in the activity and ii) create a baseline to change
various factors in upcoming workshops. It was started with a
series of six workshops held in the campus of the university
and taken by 124 participants. Results indicate that in general
working with robots is interesting and fun, there is no difference
between males and females besides the question/factor of using
technology to learn, and working in teams. Nevertheless, they also
suggest that participants´ previous experience on programming
must align with the difficulty level of the workshop.
