The Atlanta Hobby Robot Club is dedicated to the education and encouragement of robotics. We are available to schedule demonstrations on robotics to your group. Also, we are willing to explain robotics and help hobbyists throughout the area. If you or your group are planning on building a robot, or even just interested in robotics, feel free to contact us here.
There are currently about 100 people on the mailing list with 25 to 30 attending each meeting. A good percentage of the people at meetings have expertise in robot building, mechanics and electronics
