Description Robots and robotic systems are becoming an integral part of our daily lives intensively than ever. Children start to interact with them already in preschool age. Besides basic playing, they also begin to learn how to program them. As children grow up simple toys are step by step exchanged for more sophisticated ones, developing their robot programming skills from the first grade of elementary school to college. This way, interested individuals have the chance to smoothly progress from school to choice of future carrier and eventually programming on a professionally developed industry level. The programming of robotic systems is executed on various levels. The lowest layer requires the designer to know about hardware, electronics, communication between electronic systems on a physical level. In addition, the focus on diagnostics is needed; selfdiagnostics, continuous and service diagnostics of used hardware, wholly developed module and system. In our courses of robot construction and programming, we consistently and consciously focus on these areas, starting with children from the 3rd grade of elementary school, i.e. children from 8 years. This paper aims to present how the teaching is conducted in our courses, what our graduates can achieve when they continue in our courses also in high school. We want to share our experience from almost a decade of our research.
