What we're about

About us:

The Riverside Robotics Society is a group that promotes robotics in every way. Our monthly meetings will include classes on robotics, tips and pointers, contests, show and tell.

Most of club members are 25-60 years old. Membership is open to children over the age of 12, and over 8 with special permission, but be aware that our lectures and classes are meant for adults. Most kids will find the meetings and lecture material over their heads and boring. (Those under 18 must have parent present.)

Our members create everything from miniature "bug bots" to full-scale human-size robots.

We are an official branch of the Southern California Robotic Society!

Lincoln Memorial Shrine and Animatronic Outing

125 W Vine St

Please join the Riverside Robotics Society on the 30th of March. We will visit the Lincoln Memorial Shrine which is hosting Garner Holt's Animatronic Lincoln figure, the most lifelike and complicated robotic figure that exists. Garner said that he will try to be there for us. Please reserve your space early as we are limiting this to 20 people. There is a museum fee of $5 that each member will pay at the door of the museum.
