The IEEE FWCS Robotics and Automation Society Chapter strives to Learn, Do, and Teach Robotics in the Tampa Bay
We have participated in local Robotic Competitions like Robofest, BizBots, and FIRST.
Local meetings have focused on Cybersecurity, Quadcopter Drones, 3-D Printing, Touring High School and Makerspace to build Robots to name a few.
Elementary, High School, and College Robotics Teams have come to present their ideas or results from past competitions.
Looking out to do virtual meetings in the future.

Please read the following interview with a fantastic person who has worked with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics through Robotics. I am proud of the partnership of IEEE FWCS RAS with Theresa from Team Duct Tape in 2010 to the Hive at the John F Germany Library from 2014-2019 where RAS held its monthly meetings pre-Covid. She is the director at the AMROC at University Mall near USF:
Our next robotics event here will be March 4 when we host a FIRST Robotics Competition scrimmage in the mall. Prior to that we’re hosting a STEAMFest exhibit at the Florida State Fair. Our website calendar and events section should be fully updated this week so you can easily send people to it to see what’s going on when and how to get involved –https://amroctampabay.com/calendar/
