Seattle Robotics Society
The Seattle Robotics Society was formed in 1982 to serve those interested in building robots and learning about associated technologies. We are a non-profit entity consisting of a diverse group of technologists and tinkerers. Our collective passion is to learn about robots and freely share our skills, knowledge, and experience with the greater interested community through meetings, workshops, contests, outreach events, online activities, educational activities, and mentoring.
ONLINE meetings will continue using Zoom. See the meeting announcements below for all meeting details and information.
We are mostly done migrating content from the old SRS website to a new host in WordPress. Browse around the website and kick the tires. The old content has been archived and is offered mainly for historical purposes.
The Encoder is back but in its original form since migrating everything to WP is simply not practical. It will remain as it was. If new publication begins, articles will be done in WP.
All updates about upcoming events will appear ONLY on the new website and on our social media platforms.
Meeting Venue: Over the years, the SRS has met at various places (North Seattle College, then Renton Technical College in various classrooms, then the FIRSTWA Fieldhouse). We met at the FIRST Washington Field House in Kent, WA until COVID shut everything down in early 2019. In-person meetings were suspended indefinitely, but after a 5-month hiatus, while we figured virtual meetings out, we started meeting ONLINE using MS Teams, then Zoom. The unused Field House was vacated by FIRSTWA leaving us with no in-person location to return to. We hope to have a new physical location for monthly meetings sometime soon once FIRST Washington gets settled into their new facility. When in-person meetings do start, details will be posted here.
Feel free to send past meeting pictures you’d like to share to the SRS Gmail below to share on our Google Photos account. Include helpful subject line text with the message.

Every month on the third Saturday robotics fans from all over the place gather to share, learn, and geek out over robotics, science, and technology. Due to Covid-19 we have been meeting remotely over Zoom, but we will resume in-person meetings as soon as it is safe to do so. You can find recordings of the meetings here. Below you can find links to learn more about how meetings work and how to attend one, read notes from past meetings, and see our calendar of upcoming meetings.
