However, creativity seems to decline during school age years, in a phenomenon called "creative crisis". Creativity is also known as an ability that can be developed and improved. The goal of this PhD project is to create and develop social robots to serve as boosters for creative-driven behaviors in children. The main question that this project addresses is if the interaction between children and social robots can enhance children’s creative abilities. To achieve this goal, milestones were set, including throughout literature analysis on creative strategies that informed the development and creation of the robot to be used in studies with children, to investigate if the creativity of children is influenced by the interaction.}, keywords = {Social Robotic Companions;}, month = {June}, note = {Doctoral consortium of the IDC conference}, title = {The Robot–Creativity Project}, year = {2017}, author = {Patrícia Alves-Oliveira and Patrícia Arriaga and Ana Paiva and Guy Hoffman} }
