I want to learn about robotics

Hi everyone. I am a high school student who has no career plan or specific goals in the future. Every day, I simply lie around and play games but time is slowly ticking and I have to start thinking about my future.

All my life, I’ve been obsessed with robots such as Transformers and such. I’ve always been so fascinated by the idea and I still think it’s one of the coolest things ever. As a kid, I’ve always imagined designs and made up things in my head as to how I could actually build one. Although, most of the ideas are all just imagination, with no actual real factors accounted for how robotics work in this day and age.

I watch all these movies and see people creating things that I never could have thought of and I simply feel like I want to be a part of something bigger. I don’t have goals such as building the first iron man suit or anything, but I just want to start somewhere at least. How can I learn about robotics and make the things that other people can? Can anyone give me a place to start or somewhere that I can be taught robotics?

Or for those of you who have already been a part of projects such as making your own remote controlled car or anything like that; where did you start and how did you get the skills to do that today?

If this type of post is not allowed here or simply unrelated to this subreddit, please let me know and I will remove it right away. Thank you
