The DOW Red Stick Rumble


Have you ever seen six 120lb robots stacking crates to reach the sky?

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 30th, 2014.  Over one thousand people of all ages came to witness the awesomeness of watching tall robots lumber across a field of competition. More than that – they also came to see smaller robots stack blocks at our FTC Event and others to get started on the new Lego Game of the year.

This year, the Rumble is coming again to Baton Rouge, pitting a new set of robots against each other – and even better, it’s being sponsored by a company focused on innovation – DOW Chemical. 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 September 12th, 2015 for the newest FIRST Robotics Game, Recycle Rush!

We are looking not only for FRC teams but also FTC and FLL teams. FTC participants will be re-visiting Cascade Effect as they compete in Louisiana’s second FTC Scrimmage and FLL participants are invited to participate in a quick-build for the new season. New for this year? Who knows! We have a few things in the works.
