Children’s Imagined Robots: an Invitation to Co-Design is a traveling exhibition featuring the work of 84 robot designers (8-11 years old) from near-opposite sides of the globe: Tomsk, Russia and Boston, MA. Organized by the Center for Children’s Speculative Design (C4CSD.org), this exhibition seeks to amplify children’s diverse ideas for what robots could be and explore “what if…?” learning scenarios co-designed by children and adults.  This exhibition has been previously shown at the Powerhouse Museum in Sydney, Australia during the International Conference on Social Robotics and at the Maker Lounge of the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA.
