Kellogg Community College invites all area sixth- through ninth-graders to join the Bruin Bots, a team that will build and program competition robots as part of KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Center programming.

Team practices will run from 4:15 to 7 p.m. Wednesdays and Thursdays through Dec. 17 at the RMTC, located at 405 Hill Brady Road in Battle Creek. Participation is free and requires no special skills or knowledge.

Bruin Bots practices began Sept. 16, but limited space is still available; spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis.

In addition to practices, participants will compete as a team at multiple regional robotics competitions including the FIRST Tech Challenge, which may qualify them to apply for special college scholarships through the FIRST Scholarship Program.

To register for the Bruin Bots, call 269-965-4134 or email ll-info@kellogg.edu. A registration form is available online at www.kellogg.edu/bruin-bots.
