Have you ever seen six 120lb robots storming defenses and capturing enemy castles??

Last year, the Dow Red Stick Rumble sponsored by Dow Chemical, the Foundation for East Baton Rouge Parish School System, and Andymark was held on September 12th, 2015.  Over one thousand people of all ages came to witness the awesomeness of watching robots create order from chaos, stacking towers of totes to the sky.

This year, the Rumble is coming again to Baton Rouge, pitting a new set of robots against each other. These robots were not built in secret offices of large companies but in classrooms and warehouses by high school students in only six weeks time. The action is faster, the game-pieces larger, and the defense more intense. Come join us on August 27th, 2016 for the newest FIRST Robotics Game, FIRST Stronghold!

We are also inviting other robotics programs as well. Bring your FIRST Tech Challenge team to relive the excitement of climbing the mountain in RES-Q. Your FIRST Lego League team can get a leg up on the competition, learning about the new game and participating in one of the largest FLL Fast Starts in the state of Louisiana. Finally, learn the ins and outs of starting a Junior FIRST Lego League Program in your school.
