In this paper we present an educational resource called LSMaker, a caterpillar mobile robot that has been introduced in the curricula of Engineering Education. The platform has been used to link subjects, so common tasks and challenges have been defined. We are looking for updating contents and educational methodology, enhancing the motivation of students and not less important, increasing the number of new students in our engineering school. The interdisciplinary nature of the robotic project should facilitate the assimilation of new concepts. We present how this project has introduced in the first year course in La Salle Engineering school, and then we analyse the results obtained after two years of running this educational methodology.
