About Us

Robot Garden is a community workshop (501c3). We provide infrastructure so that people can engage in and collaborate on technology projects. We promote innovation and interest in science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM) by using robotics and creative or artistic projects to inspire and educate.

Robot Garden is a robotics themed makerspace and is located at the Livermore Airport to pursue opportunities in Aviation & Aerospace. We plan to make available all the tools makers have come to love such as 3D printers, laser cutters, CNC machines, soldering irons and oscilloscopes. Members can work on all manner of technology and art projects, not just robots & Aviation.

Robots are a catalyst for excitement and education. We are a community that seeks to promote innovation, creativity, learning, personal and community development and the creation of tangible new technology through collaboration, classes, and by providing resources for our members and the wider community.

By fostering open source software and hardware projects, we encourage development of technology that benefits society. We ask our community to always ‘be excellent to each other’, as Noisebridge describes it. We are already hosting events and will continue to offer classes, and host hack-a-thons, competitions, seminars and concerts among many other activities.
