The Red Stick Rumble

untitled-5045

Have you ever seen six 120lb robots throwing an exercise ball through the air?

Last year, the Red Stick Rumble, sponsored by NASA, the Albermarle Foundation, the Foundation for East Baton Rouge Parish School System, and Andymark was held on August 31st, 2013.  Over one thousand people of all ages came to witness the awesomeness of watching huge robot speed across a field of competition.

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 30th, 2014 for the newest FIRST Robotics Game, Aerial Assist!

We are also growing the Rumble. We are looking not only for FRC teams but also FTC and FLL teams. FTC participants will be re-visiting Block Party as they compete in Louisiana’s first FTC Scrimmage and FLL participants are invited to participate in a quick-build for the new season. The best part? FTC and FLL teams are admitted for free!
