Abstract

In order to inform the design of robotic applications for children, in this paper we describe and report the results of an experiment we conducted in a primary school. Our work investigates the effects of the robot's perceived gender and age on levels of engagement and acceptance of the robot by children across different age and gender groups. Our results show that children across ages relate differently toward perceived robot's age and gender.
