FERRADA FERRADA, Cristian  y  DIAZ-LEVICOY, Danilo Antonio. Robotics, programming, and an approach to environmental education. trf [online]. 2023, vol.19, n.1, pp.30-52.  Epub 01-Ene-2022. ISSN 2077-2955.


This paper aims at assessing the impact of a program introduced at the primary education level for the promotion of sustainability and environmental education and the need scientific training based on STEM, programming and educative robotics.


A sample of 15 fifth and sixth students is involved in an environmental educative program involving an experimental practice of programing and driving a robot through a simulated city. Two types of STEM materials were used: Scratch programing and robotics. The aim is to stimulate creativity and logical thinking in using mathematics previously systematize notions in programing. Pre and posttest techniques were used to assess the impact of our life style on the environment.


The pretest given shows that students have a low level or ecological consciousness. After their enrolment in the program, the post text confirms that 93,3% recognize the importance of preserving environmental conditions and of being aware of the impact of individual actions on nature.


The use STEMS tools, robotics, programming in an environmental educative program contributes to students’ cognitive and emotional achievement, particularly to the development of awareness about the importance of preserving natural conditions and sustainability.
