The purpose of this study is to determine the effect of robotic activities (mblock - arduino) on students' attitudes towards coding and their self-efficacy. Within the scope of the study, 14-week robotic coding activities were planned, followed by 43 8th grade students. Qualitative research method was used in this study. In order to collect the research data, self-proficiency perception scale for block-based programming and robotics attitude scale were applied as pre-test and post-test. For dependent samples, t-test was applied and analyses were performed. According to the findings of the study, there was a significant increase in students' positive attitudes towards coding, and students' self-efficacy for coding. Robotic coding (mblock- Arduino) trainings were given and activities were made within the scope of these trainings. 5 activities related to robotic coding were performed. mBlock- Arduino for robotic coding and Fritzing programs for circuit diagram were taught. According to the findings of the research, after teaching programming with robotic coding activities, there was a significant increase in students' positive attitudes towards coding, students' self-efficacy for coding, and students' permanent learning.
