This paper is the experience-based summary of the work with the design, imple-mentation and results from an “Educational Robotics and Creativity Workshop” under the EU funded Horizon 2020 project „ER4STEM – Educational Robotics for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics“. This paper gives an overview of the empirical data obtained from the post-workshop questionnaires, completed by the participants from 13 educational robotics workshops, per-formed in 7 schools (public and private) in Bulgaria with 312 students (142 girls and 170 boys) in the time period from February 16, 2016 until May 31, 2016. The students were between 7 and 14 years old with the majority of them aged be-tween 9 and 10 years old.
