Monthly Meetings

If you are building a robot or just planning one, come down and meet the gang. We are on an exciting journey and welcome you to join us at a monthly meeting. Meetings are free and open to anyone who would like to attend.

The Seattle Robotics Society meets on the third Saturday of each month. The meetings start at 10 a.m. and typically run until 12 noon. Come a little early if you can help set up tables and chairs and to catch the pre-meeting slide show with lots of information about the club and its activities.

Our meetings are held at Renton Technical College. We meet in one side of the Bldg K "quad," K-201/202 (east side) or K-203/204 (west side) depending on room availability. Take the covered walkway / bridge to the second floor and follow the signs to the SRS meeting. See below for maps and directions.

We start by briefly addressing any club business and sharing news of upcoming robotics events in the area, then have a period of show-and-tell where anyone who wants to can demonstrate current projects, mention interesting new technologies, and ask questions. Next, a guest speaker will share his/her experience on a robotics-related topic. (The SRS home page shows information on upcoming presentations, and the meeting presentations page shows a summary of past presentations.) After this, the meeting officially ends, and members chat and follow up on questions or demonstrations they want to see in more detail.

A small group sometimes gets together for an post-meeting lunch. This is just a time to get together, visit, and chat about robots or whatever. The lunch meeting place will be announced (with directions) during the meeting.

We frequently hold work sessions or a workshop after lunch. The SRS home page shows the afternoon events scheduled each month.

Each meeting is an informal "swap meet" where you can bring things you don't need anymore, but be sure to take back home anything that doesn't leave with someone else.

Monday Night Chat

The Seattle Robotics Society hosts a "Monday Night Chat" each week.

Starting at 7pm Pacific Daylight Time each Monday, the SRS holds an informal chat session. This is a great opportunity to come ask live questions of the SRS members, seek help for technical problems, or just chat about stuff.

Details for joining the chat are on the Contact Us page.
