FIRST Team 1506 Metal Muscle

WOW! Thank you all for making this dream a reality! Your generosity has made this incredible opportunity possible. We look forward to updating you about the trip upon our return!

Kettering's FIRST Robotics Team, 1506, Metal Muscle, the only FIRST team associated with a university, is one of only ten teams in the country invited to attend the Zhejiang Robotics International in Hangzhou, China, July 27 - July 30, 2018. A portion of the trip is already funded, but they need to raise an additional $15,000 to take 6 students and 4 mentors to Hangzhou.

When you make a gift of $35 or more we'll send you a pair of bulldog socks only available through June 30.

Add your support now to make this incredible opportunity a reality!

Kettering's Robotics Program and Metal Muscle have grown exponentially and now is a leader in FIRST. The FIRST Community Center at Kettering is home to Metal Muscle and seven other community teams. The University hosts 2 district events annually and this year over one-third of the Kettering freshman class were FIRST alumni.
