Therefore, the paper outlines the club’s conception, the sources of inspiration, and the achieved outcomes within the school and local community. It also highlights the activities and small projects developed by the students and the active participation of the club members in the Brazilian National Robotics Olympics. Furthermore, through student reports and an internal survey, the paper emphasizes the remarkable development of desired competencies, including creativity, teamwork, problem-solving, and computational thinking.
