LA Robotics Club promotes experimentation with electronics and gives its members a community to participate in and learn about the world of robotics.
We focus on projects that can be created on a tight budget with readily available parts.
Our group is about freedom of creative expression through technology and the main goals are to have fun, meet awesome people, learn new robotics skills, and do all the things your parents never let you do.
I'm offering a $10 discount on the brand-new online version of Learning Arduino and Electronics to LARC members:

Since our last general meeting MONTHS ago our friends at the SBEC have found a new meeting space where we might be able to accommodate a series of small Arduino Classes, etc. (in Torrance near the old SBEC location).
I'm posting this open-ended, non specific Meetup just to see how many people would be interested in taking our Intro to Arduino and Electronics class in the next couple of months? Class price would be somewhere around $40 plus about $40 for an Arduino starter kit if you don't have one already.
Please only reply here if you're interested in taking such a class. We'll use responses here to gauge interest.
Our sister robotics club, the Houston Robotics Club (founded by our own Annika OBrien!) is currently developing a Telepresence Robot and we've been discussing the idea of running two robots at once between Houston and LA.
To that end I am looking for a few dedicated individuals interested in developing a telepresence robot.
In particular we'll be working with both Arduino and Raspberry Pi, a remote-control based unit, and a touch-screen display with an embedded webcam.
If you're interested in helping out reply below.
