The importance today is the development of computational thinking of technological professionals. This kind of thinking is useful for solving algorithms, analyzing, designing, coding and generating tests in a computer language. Today, obtaining knowledge and skills is related to the use of technology. In this paper, a robot is used as a teaching element to motivate the generation process of computational thinking in students of high school level. Measurement of variables, such as: advantages, interest, competition and operating time serve as indices to determine the degree of acceptance of this educational tool.
