Welcome to the Roanoke Robotics & Makers Club!

We build robots ... We make all sorts of things... we hold friendly competitions & workshops ... we learn from each other... and we have a lot of fun!

We meet at the Science Museum of Western Virginia in Roanoke, Virginia, on the first Saturday of every month, at 12:00 noon.

The robotics club is for everyone... adults, families, and kids of all ages.


If you like to build, design, hack, modify, learn about & share robotics & other exciting technologies, you'd enjoy our group!

We look forward to seeing you at our events!

Check us out at: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Roanoke-Robo...

We are looking for people to share their knowledge and cool creations! If you have something you'd like to share, please bring it to a meeting!

And if you are connected with any local technology organizations or groups, we'd love to hear from you... We'll even provide free advertising of your events!
