A __Recipe Page__ is a page that describes how to perform a small task. 

Each Recipe should include:

* __Topic__, generally in the form of "''How do I…?''"
* __Description__ (a longer description of the recipe)
* __Author__ of the recipe (member name)
* optional __Links__ to related wiki pages or web pages

Also, each Recipe page should also be tagged as follows:
[{Tag Recipe}]
so that it can be catalogued. You can also include any tags that would help other people 
find the Recipe, such as "Hardware", "Software", etc. Tags are separated by spaces, e.g.,
[{Tag Recipe Hardware RaspberryPi}]

You can request a [Recipe], a [Task] or [Tutorial] using a [Request] (or by sending an email to [Murray] if you don't have write access to the wiki)

It'd be foolish to think that a single website could fulfill all the needs of a budding robot scientist. There are many existing sites that provide good information for building robots, and acquiring the skills necessary to do so. Here's a few:
