We're working hard to open 

A HUGE thank you to everyone who helped us with our KickstarterWe are expecting to receive concept drawings from the architects very soon and can hopefully move through the steps of getting permits and construction underway this summer!

Wake Robotics is a community of people who believe in engaging the youth and others in our community in exploring and learning new technologies, engineering and the arts. These provide the focus for developing 21st century skills of leadership, collaboration, communication, team building, and public speaking.

We’re collaborative, volunteer-based, and working very hard to move into new facilities in downtown Cary in the late fall of 2014.  While we’re going through that process, we’re still doing our “every day” activities of building giant 3D printers, racing WrOBOTS in parks, designing robots and playing with Makey Makeys to take subversive cat photos.

“7 months ago, I thought robotics wasn’t for me. And, today, it inspires me. Why I thought that, I have absolutely no idea, because the past season spent with PyroTech has been truly amazing. I don't think of myself in one particular way any more; I don't think of myself separately as an artist or a writer or an engineer anymore. I think of myself as a creator. ”
