The Twin Falls Middle School Ravenbots Robotic Team is selling Hexbugs, small robotic toys, said to be a new craze.

Toy sales help the club with robot purchases, a competition table, T-shirts and entry fees. Hexbugs range in price from $6 to $20.

The Twin Falls club competes in the FIRST LEGO League, a non-profit group that helps children get excited about science and technology.

The club’s first competition is December 9. If they do well, they move on to regionals.
