When attending a meeting at the
Heritage it is required that we park next door in the parking lot of the
La Quinta Hotel so that we do not park in a reserved space. (
Parking is free.)
The Robot Group meets once a week on Thursday Nights and makes regular appearances at community, education and social events. Meetings at the
Heritage will usually fall on the
third weeks of the month, and are structured to start about 8:00 to 10:00 PM. Announcements, show-and-tell, and other group functions are carried out during these meetings.
We meet at the
ATX Development Center on alternate weeks with an informal, build session type environment where we work on many projects. Come join in the fun as we create, develop, and build all sorts of exciting things both robotic and artistic.
You can find out more about the group, events, and locations on our web page:
Wherever we meet, we encourage you to bring along projects for "Show and Tell". A project can be as little as a few sheets of paper that describe what your designing all the way up to and including a finished robotic device.
We have 110v power and a video projector, so feel free to bring a laptop or other portable electronics. Our typical mix is artists, engineers, teachers, hobbyists and sometimes just folks that peer in to see what all the racket is about!
We are kid friendly and encourage young people to become "junior members". Everyone is welcome, children younger than 12 should be escorted by a parent. You may be surprised at what our active youth have done... be sure to come visit us soon!
If you like what you see and want to join up... membership in the robot group is just $25.00 a year which includes an official Robot Group T-Shirt. (Such a deal!) Junior memberships are $15.00 and includes a t-shirt as well.
NOTE: Though becoming a member is highly encouraged, you do NOT have to be a member to attend a meeting. Hope to see you at our next meeting!
