The recognition of emotions is a basic ability to interpret and analyze the user experience (UX). For instance, UX of children facing an issue is found by teachers in a manual manner. However, there exist innovative technologies like emotion recognition to uncover such UX. This paper shows the results of an experiment to understand how user experience based on emotions (anger, contempt, disgust, sadness, fear, neutral, happiness and surprise) can be measured to find significant differences in a learning context. In the experiment, emotion detection is gathered in an educational robotics workshop with seven children between 10 and 11 years old by using a facial emotion recognition method. The results validate that there exists a difference in the UX with some emotions in the learning stages.
