Robotics technology is considered as a new learning program in the teaching and learning of science, particularly in STEM education. The creation of Robotics Program at the De La Salle Santiago Zobel (DLSZ) school, and its integration to the curriculum prompted the researchers to come up with an assessment on how the students perceive their level of creativity and innovativeness in doing robotics. This descriptive study involved elite members of the robotics team from Grade 4-12 (n=46) who served as the respondents to the 7-item selfevaluation instrument adopted by the researchers. Results from this study revealed that the students perceived their level of creativity and innovation in terms of the Process to be at level 3 which is tagged as 'Standard' and described as proficient level of student performance. Also, under Product Design, their perceived level of creativity and innovation was Standard with Value having the highest mean (3.43). The relationship between the students' perceptions on the Process and the Product Design of their robotics outputs proved to be significant (r=.686) at p = .01. While the levels of creativity and innovation among the elite members of the DLSZ robotics was described at the Above Standard level. Interestingly, students' sex and grade levels were found to be not significant to their perceived creativity and innovation levels. To understand fully the integration of robotics in the curriculum in relation to the performance of the students, a variety of instruments could be developed to gather a more valid and reliable assessment protocol. Likewise, assessments coming from the different collaborative stakeholders should be conducted. © 2019 Association for Computing Machinery.
