There has been recent attention to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning for early age children. Furthermore, the development of new technology learning standards and methods for integrating it into early age children education have been improved. Teacher-centred learning, information through lectures, relies on the use of whiteboards or reading materials recommended by teachers, causes passive students and such an approach can not address the challenges of the global economic era in educational processes and lacks equipping students with 21st-century skills needed recently. This paper reports preliminary findings on the robotics learning tools such as Arduino-based driverless vehicle technology influences student’ perception of the 21st-century skills pertinent to technological and vocational education and training (TVET) learning circumstances using a descriptive-qualitative research design. Two out of 100 target participants involved in this research, purposive sampling trough students with TVET learning environment. Interview such as open-ended and closed interview used to collecting the data and resulting in findings that indicate the correlation between student’s achievement on 21st-century skills and constructivist learning environment.
