This research intends to investigate the effect of an educational technology program approach on students’ attitude towards problem solving. Quantitative research with the quasi-experimental model (pre-test & post-test) was used in the study to outline the research design and questionnaire technique was administered for data collecting from experiment and control group. The samples were 10 years old (Year 4) primary schools’ students from Selangor and Malacca state in Malaysia with a total sample of 500 students. Inferential statistical test, Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA) with significance value 0.05 was performed using SPSS 25 to analyze the data. Based on data and discussion that have been accomplished, it can be concluded there is a significant difference on students’ attitude towards problem solving in experimental group after attending educational technology program over control group who did not participate in educational technology program and only experiences traditional learning method. Educational technology program approach that has been used in this study was robotic program. This robotic program is suggested as one of the innovative STEAM and game based program, based on constructivism which is advised for enhancing problem solving skills. Excellent problem solving skill will assist students in resolving contextual and complex problems.
