Welcome Robotics Enthusiasts!
Hello robotics enthusiasts! Stop by and see our robots every month. Everyone is welcome and no experience required. We have people from all ages and experience joining us every month who bring simple robots to extraordinary intelligent machines that include both hardware and software. Bring your kids so they can get inspired by these robots or to ask questions. Our meetings include lectures, competitions and Show-N-Tell.
