The HomeBrew Robotics Club was resurrected from the ashes of the original HomeBrew Computer Club by a group enthusiasts who were interested in the emerging field of robotics.

 

HBRC members have a range of expertise in robotics that includes beginners, experienced amateurs and professionals. There are no age restrictions, so if you have an interest in the field of robotics, please join us.

We currently meet from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm on the last Wednesday of every month (except December).

The venue for the meeting is being hosted by Google (courtesy of Ryan Hickman) on their campus.
