Robotics as an interdisciplinary tool in physics
Keywords:Educational robotics, Teaching, Physics
Educational robotics as a pedagogical resource is still a high-cost tool, and for this reason, restricted to a few students. Studies show that robotics as an educational tool allows students to relate knowledge from different areas, enabling dynamic learning. As a low-cost solution, this project proposes to develop a small robot prototype. The proposed prototype moves freely with two engines and when it collides with an obstacle, it changes its direction immediately. The construction of this prototype is carried out using two mini DC 1.5V motors, two micro switch keys, a battery holder, a piece of galvanized sheet metal, a small switch, and paper clips. The principle of movement of the robot is based on the on/off switches, which turn off/on the motors. In collisions with objects, the on/off mechanism guarantees changes in direction and direction. Vectors, circuits, electric current are some of the possible studies through this project. Teaching the circuit involved in the prototype, and its assembly, can transform physics and science classes in general into something more attractive to the student and promote meaningful learning of content in exact areas.

Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The Ciência e Natura journal is committed to ensuring ethics in publication and quality of articles.
Conformance to standards of ethical behavior is therefore expected of all parties involved: Authors, Editors, Reviewers, and the Publisher.
Authors: Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the experiments. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable. Review Articles should also be objective, comprehensive, and accurate accounts of the state of the art. The Authors should ensure that their work is entirely original works, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal. The corresponding Author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all Co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.
Editors: Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. An Editor must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the Author. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published paper.
Reviewers: Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage. Reviewers should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that Authors can use them for improving the paper. Any selected Reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the Editor and excuse himself from the review process. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
