Robot Diaries: An Interdisciplinary Collaboration to

Illah Nourbakhsh, Carl DiSalvo, Emily Hamner, Tom Lauwers, Debra Bernstein

In this extended abstract we present an overview of the Robot Diaries project for consideration for inclusion in the upcoming spring 2007 AAAI workshop on Multidisciplinary Collaboration for Socially Assistive Robots. Robot Diaries is an educational robotics project that brings together researchers from robotics, informal education, and design to develop and evaluate a robot platform and curriculum for middle-school girls. We believe Robot Diaries would make a worthwhile inclusion to the workshop because of its highly interdisciplinary team and emphasis on participatory design.
