    MTRAS ~ MidTn Robotic Arts Society Monthly Meetup

    Newbies, gearheads & everyone in between are welcome. Most meetings start with a show and tell format. the show and tell is informal and last about an hour. We then break-up for informal discussions. We always welcome anyone wanting to give a specific presentation. Let us know if you'd like to present on a particular topic!

    SIGN-IN PROCEDURES:

    There is a table next to the gift shop (to the right as you enter) where MTRAS members can sign-in before attending the meeting.

    A member of MTRAS or Larry Dunlap-Berg, with the Adventure Science Center, will staff the table between 9:45 -10:15. (ASC’s front desk admission staff will be busy preparing to open the science center so please do not ask them for assistance.)

    After signing in, you will be given a wrist band specific for MTRAS members, and then you may go to Eureka Corner for the meeting. You MUST have a wristband to attend MTRAS meetings and afternoon workshops, and we encourage you to re-use your meeting wristband for the workshop.

    A member of MTRAS will setup and staff the table again from 1:15 - 1:30 for workshops.

    If you arrive late you must now wait in line and sign in at the front desk. No exceptions.

    Meetings are still free unless you plan on paying to explore the Science Center, which we encourage.

    WHERE WE MEET AT THE ASC:

    We typically meet on the second floor in the Eureka room,which is in the far right corner as you walk up the steps to the second floor.

    message the organizers if you have any questions.


    See ya'll there!
