Team practices will run from 4 to 5:45 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays Sept. 25 through Dec. 11 at the RMTC, located at 405 Hill Brady Road in Battle Creek. Participation is free and requires no special skills or knowledge, but space is limited and 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.
