The Research, Technological Development and Innovation System of SENA (SENNOVA) of Colombia, has the purpose of strengthening the standards of quality and relevance, through programs and projects as Tecnoacademias, defined as a STEM learning scenario, equipped with emerging technologies to develop innovation-oriented skills, through project training, to students of basic and secondary education, in courses such as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, applied sciences such as Robotics, Nanotechnology, Biotechnology and Virtual Technologies. This work presents some of the activities carried out by the apprentices through the Educational Robotics in Tecnoacademia Risaralda and Tecnoacademia Caldas sites, based on Industrial and Mechatronic Design methodologies, using LEGO MINDSTORM EV3 kits and Design Thinking for educators and LEGO, successfully applied in the EducarChile program. It is based on three fundamental pillars, which are empathy, collaboration and experimentation, which are presented in the five (5) phases of the methodology. It should be noted that the tools of innovation and prototyping per se, do not serve much if the team that executes them is not immersed in a culture of tolerance, teamwork, leadership and if there is no feedback and if the capacities are not taken into account and strengths of the work team. All this was achieved through different prototypes of robots of light and robust type originated in a PON scenario (problem, opportunity, needs).
