Abstract: Robotics in education is considered as a powerful tool for motivating and training students. Thanks to its multidisciplinary character, it allows for the development of the contents of a multitude of materials, mainly those related to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). This has been demonstrated in many studies and experiences that have been developed around the world over recent years. However, despite the undoubted benefits and the various initiatives, many educational communities have serious difficulties implementing this tool in the development of their curriculums. The purpose of this article is to present Ciberlandia, a real learning experience that responds to these difficulties and helps to extensively promote careers in scientific and technological disciplines for youngsters. This initiative has celebrated 4 editions and has involved 2,480 participants from 53 primary and secondary schools in The Canary Islands.
