Resumo


This paper discusses the importance of initiating computer education in basic education, and has developed activities in an extension project. The initial actions were the development of a programming course for elementary school students, in which the goal was to prepare them for the Olympiad of Informatics. Training has adopted a methodology where students are encouraged through competitions in groups and individually, solving challenges related to programming logic. The results showed that it is possible to develop computational thinking at the beginning of school education, in addition to providing digital inclusion of young people who had little access to digital technologies.
