Hello! Welcome to the Orlando Robotics & Makers Club!

We are building a strong Robotics & Maker community in Central Florida.  Glad you found us!

If you met us at Maker Faire Orlando, click here to learn more.

We love to share our knowledge of robotics, 3D Printing, radio controlled airplanes, micro-controllers, and other Maker projects.  Our members have a variety of skill sets ranging from newbies, students, graphic designers, technical editors as well as mechanical, electrical and software engineers.  We all share a common passion for making fun things and have begun to collaborate on projects such as the 2014 Maker Faire exhibit.  We welcome your new ideas and hope to get folks excited about making and continuously improving our group.

We are passionate about strengthening the community by increasing STEM / STEAM skills (i.e., Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math), for all people, and supporting education for everyone... preschoolers through retirees.

Come join us and please suggest events, projects & topics of interest.

There is no cost to join and there are no monthly dues.  You can learn how to do most everything from fellow members.

We meet the 2nd Saturday of every month, from noon to 2PM, in the Melrose Tech Center, on the 2nd floor of the downtown Orlando Library.

Hope to see you at the next meetup!

Thanks,

Kevin

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
