Given the complexity of the learning process, it is a great challenge getting students to be actively involved in it. There is a concern for professors to use new teaching-learning strategies that playfully approach, motivate and increase the attention span of students in the learning sessions. The objective of this study is to use educational robotics (RE) for the teaching of "concepts of particle movement in one dimension". The sample is made up of 69 students of the Physics course of the third semester (second year), of the Professional School of Systems Engineering. The differences found between the pre and post-test of both groups are not statistically significant. From that we conclude that a single learning session is not enough to obtain results similar to the actual values. However, the use of educational robotics "improves the attitude" towards learning in students.
