Resumen

These days stand on a digital era, where science and technology are two key concepts for understanding the fundamentals of devices people cope daily. In order to increase the population size of at least, technology-friendly users, fostering the algorithmic thinking process on children is a crucial step and has taken more relevance every year. This document presents the experience of a group of students highly-committed to present to children the exciting underlying concepts found on robotics, through practical sessions whose ending is marked by a national competition for school children, where the acquired solving problems skills using robotics can be tested. These courses have been extended both on impact and physical locations: some children are taken to compete at RoboCup Junior, and there has been an increasing interest of attend to these free courses on several places from all over the country.
