Robot Fest

11100 Johns Hopkins Road
Laurel, MD 20723



Robot Fest is an annual event for anyone interested in the creative use of technology. It could be best described as a "Day of Playful Invention." We encourage makers, hackers, hobbyists, DIYers, experimenters, students, artists, and engineers, young and old to share their passion for technology and creativity. They bring their creations and inventions for everyone to see and are excited to explain how they work.

If you are inexplicably drawn to sites like Makezine, Instructables, Hackaday, Servo Magazine, Nuts and Volts, or Robot Magazine, you will enjoy this day of playful invention!

See something new. Ask questions. Awaken your creative instinct.

It features workshops and numerous hands-on activities that are a big hit with younger attendees. There will always be "Make and Take" activities offered. Our event is designed to offer activities and things to see and do that appeal to both boys and girls. One of the goals of our event is to spark an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).

This event is sponsored each year by the National Electronics Museum, which is a technology marvel in its own right. The museum, located in Linthicum, MD, houses decades worth of creative engineering and showcases technical advances in science and engineering.

Join the fun and excitement with hands-on exhibits, and workshops!
