Starbot is pretty much the nerve center of robotics in South Florida. It’s a center that focuses on enabling high schoolers to create whatever they can imagine. Though it’s usually robots, I’ve seen student work on go-karts, R/C cars, art projects, and even a camera dolly (ok, that was me during some down time).
An independent, non-profit organization, it’s great because even if you’re a student at a school that doesn’t have a machine shop (like most schools), you still have the opportunity to get involved with robotics and other cool programs. They even offer a large amount of classes, from welding and mill work, to design methodology and marketing.
