Abstract

  • © 2019 Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).In this paper, describes the implementation of a LEGO® robotic kit inside an elementary school. This platform was programmed using NI LabVIEW to create 26 different diligences used for STEM teaching with students from fourth to sixth grade. Such diligences covered mathematics and renewable energies topics that the students used to play and learn about the respective topics remarked by the school educational program. After using the robotic kit, every student answered a test that included questions regarding the topic treated. The evaluation of the student¿s results was made using fuzzy logic through a NI LabVIEW interface. This program was evaluated in an elementary school in Mexico City, showing that the use of this platform helped secure their knowledge of the topics seen.
