The Robot Group meets once a week on Thursday Nights at one of the locations listed below, and makes regular appearances at community, education and social events. We love company and really hope to see new faces at our meetings! If you have an interest in electronics, robotics, or just building and doing really fun stuff... then come on out!
There are two places we meet depending on which week it is in the month, this gives everyone a chance to go to a meeting near them... see below for more details.
The Heritage at Gaines Ranch Loop
Every 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month.
4409 Gaines Ranch Loop Austin, TX 78735
Meetings at the Heritage are on the first and 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. There is free parking at the La Quinta hotel next door. When you enter the Heritage, please sign in the guest book by the receptionist.
ATX Development Center
Every 2nd and 4th and 5th Thursday of the month.
1908 Kramer Ln. Bldg. B Ste. L Austin, TX 78758
We meet at the ATX Development Center on the 2nd, 4th, and 5th week of every month 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. Have a project? bring it! There is ample free parking in the main lot, be sure to sign in the guest book as you enter the building.
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!
