See scores of real robots, TV robots, and movie robots!

A cosplay costume contest!

The Expo is put on primarily for the kids of of all ages in Southern California. They had over 2000 people last year. A lot of the kids who come to the expo are from the poorer sections of town. The event touches the lives of the kids who need inspiration most.

It is the hope of the folks of the Riverside Robotics Society that if they can inspire a dozen or two children a year to get into math, science, or engineering instead of drugs and gangs, they are truly helping to create a better society.

The robot expo is also a venue that allows robot builders to show off their latest creations, interact with the general public as well as interact with other people interested in robots and robotics.

This Robot Expo is the biggest robot event in Southern California!
