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.


  • Due to remodeling on Renton Tech's campus, our meeting location has changed. We now meet in room J-305.
  • In even-numbered months (Feb, Apr, Jun, Aug, Oct, Dec), the meeting will be followed by an afternoon robot work session (until 5 p.m.). Lunch arrangements for work sessions will be announced at the meeting but feel free to bring your own.

Upcoming Events


Our regular meetings are at 10 a.m. on the third Saturday of each month at Renton Technical College. See the meetings page for details on location and directions.

Note that it's always a good idea to check this page before the meeting in case inclement weather or a holiday forces a cancellation.

If you would like to present at a meeting, or know someone who would, please email Steve Kaehler.

The Presentations page contains an archive of presenters and their topics.

  • November 21, 2015
    This month we have two presentations, which will fill most of the meeting time. If you have things you hope to show during the Round-the-Room time, please bring them to the December meeting or feel free to bring things to show during the break and after the meeting.
    • Bluthe and the Rover - Anantika Mannby will present on two of her robots. She will demonstrate the robots and talk about her projects and what she learned about robotics during her two years with Destination Imagination.
    • New SRS Workshop Robot Proposal - SRS member Carol Hazlett will present a proposal for a new SRS Workshop Robot. There will be working examples of the robot, and she will demonstrate some of the behaviors on line maze, line following, and walking robot courses.

      The intention of this robot is to teach basic programming, using and calibrating sensors and motors, using a bread board, and some basic electronics. It is based on an Arduino Uno microcontroller. This robot would be a great way to participate in numerous Robothon contests.

      Carol will have the instruction manuals, proposed workshop curriculum, and copies of all the lessons for people to look at and evaluate.

Monday Night Chat

The Seattle Robotics Society hosts a "Monday Night Chat" each week. Official time is 7 - 9 p.m. Pacific Time, but people are often around outside this timeframe as well. Details are on the Contact Us page.
