The Portland Area Robotics Society
We are an Oregon non-profit formed to help those interested in robots. Our monthly meetings are open to the public. Everyone is welcome.
The PARTS yahoo group is a lively forum for public interchange on robotics; anyone is welcome to join the group. However, we will be migrating a lot of our online presence to our new colaborative web space -- part blog and part wiki:
Visit the PARTS Wiki at: http://colab.portlandrobotics.org
Whether online or in person, we offer an active group of people building robots who are willing to help out anyone who also wants to learn about and build robots.
Meetings are the first Saturday of each month at 10:30 am, room FAB-150, Portland State Univ (SW 4th Ave & College St.)
We have switched meeting rooms as of the April, 2013 meeting. The ECE department has generously offered to provide us the use of a classroom free of charge.
Directions to FAB-150:
Enter lobby of the PSU Engineering Building (4th and College). Go down stairs (or take elevator). Take hallway to the left of the elevators and then turn left. Follow that hallway for awhile, until you are just about to enter the area with a sign "Engineering and Technology Management". Take a jog left and right and then continue to a small lobby with a green wall. Stairs and elevator are both in that lobby. Go up one flight. From the elevator, turn left (from stairs, turn right), follow the hall around a short distance and FAB-150 is on your left.
