This program was conducted to analyze the effect of a robotic program in assessing technological problem solving among local primary school children. The content in the robotic and programming modules (RPGsr modules) which contain technological problem solving activities has been going through expert validation before it were applied in this study. The instrument used to measure the technological problem solving was Technological Problem Solving Inventory (PSI-TECH/TPS) which under-go back-to-back translation (English-Malay language) and scale validation. Sequential explanatory mixed-method design was implemented in this study, involved quasiexperimental within control group and experimental group which were homogeneous in selected characteristics. For the qualitative analysis, focus interviewed was done within the participants after the program. Analysis of student’ reflection in modules was conducted via the robotics activities.The robotic and basic visual coding program was conducted for 5 months, with an hour of lesson each week, which was consistent with the school syllabus. For the quantitative analysis, result obtained by collecting the data before and after the program, analyze through t-test and ANCOVA. Result had shown a significance positive value within the treatment group after the program. This study contributes in the field of research design in education, in investigating the technological problemsolving skills among students. In addition, help to diversify the studies in the field of robotics.
