This project envisions the possibility of investigating the proposition of robotics as an alternative methodology to the traditional teaching of curriculum content for Mathematics and Natural Sciences admitting that robotics has the potential to become the student producer and not just consumers of digital technology as has happened with the use of most of technological resources in education. Considering that robotics has never been this much now in everyone's life, we want to evaluate the use of it, not only as a resource used infrequently and in specific areas, but as a necessary tool for the teacher to have more interaction with students, awakening thus greater attention of the student improving their learning. Want to evaluate, together with the teachers of primary and secondary education, the use of robotics can actually contribute to the school and their teaching methods go hand in hand with the technological society in which we live. Or if robotics is something to be discarded, at least for now, lesson plans for teachers. For this, the project will build, and theoretical research in collecting and analyzing data obtained from reports of school life and teachers involved.
