Abstract: This paper analyzed 20 peer-reviewed empirical studies on the development of computational thinking in young learners (pre-kindergarten to 6th grade) through educational robotics. The analysis revealed that young learners are able to develop various dimensions of computational thinking through age-appropriate robotics kits and effective pedagogical approaches. Voids in the literature and potential areas for future research were discussed.
