Welcome to the RoboDojo Community Website!

The RoboDojo is an exciting, newly established innovation space (located on NPS campus in Root Hall, Room 125) where students, staff, faculty, and friends can come 'tinker' and learn about robot components and systems. Whether you┬╣re five or seventy-five years old, the RoboDojo is designed to promote informal hands-on learning with open hours and volunteer mentors to help the NPS community learn about:

  • rapid prototyping (e.g, with 3D printers and laser cutters);
  • embedded computing (e.g., with Arduino and Raspberry Pi);
  • basic electronics (e.g., with various electronics and breadboard components);
  • robotic software programming (e.g., for Robot Operating System in Python);
  • and more!  

The RoboDojo also hosts various community-led workshops, including recent gatherings on topics ranging from Basics of Solidworks, Intro to Printed Circuit Boards, to Laser Cutting and Engraving, and a Raspberry Pi Workshop.  The RoboDojo represents a grassroots initiative to promote collaborative and community learning, so feel free to stop by and learn about robots!
