Welcome to the Seattle Robotics Society!

The Seattle Robotics Society was formed in 1982 to serve those interested in learning about and building robots. We are a non-profit corporation comprised of a diverse group of professionals and amateurs, high school students and college professors, engineers and tinkerers. Our passion is the creation of cybernetic creatures that challenge the old definitions of life, intelligence, and practicality.

See the SRS Programs page for information on the activities that the SRS does to help promote robotics. There is also information there on getting started in robotics.

This information is current as of 8/19/2017.

Announcements

  • We no longer meet at Renton Tech College but now at the FIRST WA Field House, 21238 68th Ave South, Kent, WA (as of 1/21/17).
  • Signs will direct you either upstairs to the conference room or straight through the building to the warehouse highbay.
  • Meetings may be followed by an afternoon robot work session (until 4 p.m.) where we'll build and program the Parallax BOE-Bot Arduino Robots, depending on interest. Bring your kit (available for $125 cash or check), a project to work on, questions to ask, or just hang out and see what others are working on.

Upcoming Events

Robothon

Robothon will be at Seattle Center Armory on Saturday, September 30, 2017. It is open to the public and admission is free. Check the Robothon page for details on events and activities. Click here for a printable poster you can put up to spread the word.
