[en] Robots have been proposed as teaching assistants for children, but few studies have measured their effectiveness. This paper describes an experiment using the Baxter robot for teaching basic computational principles. We compare acquired abilities in students with a control group lectured by a human teacher in a traditional way. These abilities are focused on the application of computational principles to a different domain. Experiment description, data analysis and discussion of the results are also presented in this paper.
