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 are switching meeting rooms as of the April 6th meeting. The ECE department has generously offered to provide us the use of a classroom free of charge.
Someone will meet people in the lobby of the Engineering Building (the door we have been going into up to this point). Our new meeting room is in the Fourth Avenue Building (FAB-150) which is next door.
Directions to FAB-150:
Enter lobby of Engineering Building. 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.
Next Main Meeting - May 4, 2013
"Report on First Robotics National Championship" presented by Pete Skeggs
We would also like to have a discussion about possible new group projects and contests.
And perhaps Dave Shinsel will be able to make it and talk about his experiences with Robot Combat League!
