Starting a dedicated robotics group in Anchorage
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

I'd like to find out if there's enough interest in robotics to start a dedicated group. There are a lot of different things happening in Anchorage at various levels through separate organization that don't get noticed outside of those organizations. Examples of what I know of are Vex and First Robotics at the school level, UAA has people doing robotics, there are people in Anchorage working with drones and many individuals are working with 3D printers and CNC mills. I'm sure there are other things going on that I don't know about. A dedicated group could create a synergy, increase the visibility of these various activities and increase participation at all levels. In order for it to work, we need to have a few people from each of those special interest groups get involved as co-organizers to schedule meetups and post information about those activities.

If this sounds like something you'd like to participate in or have a son or daughter who's interested please RSVP even though there's no date or venue yet. If you're interested in being a co-organizer please say so in the comments.

Thanks,

Dale
