In the article, the authors propose technological projects to develop computational thinking following the phases of problem-solving: understanding the problem, elaboration of the plan, execution of the plan and revision of the solution. During the execution of the projects, the students carried out activities, such as the elaboration of algorithms, programming of the Arduino board and sensors from a friendly and playful interface such as the mBlock; as well as the debugging of programs until obtaining the expected results; These activities carried out by the students had an impact on cognitive processes (reasoning, decision making, understanding of the environment, logic, etc.), practices and technological perspectives. It has been shown that there is a causality between computational thinking skills and problem-solving phases in an environment of engineering students who have just entered university. For the analysis of the relationship between computational thinking skills and problem solving, the Pearson correlation statistical test was used through SPSS software.
