Destrehan High School’s robotics team won the Bayou Regional for the first time in school history and will now head to the national championship.
In the largest field to date at the Bayou Regional, the Wildcats defeated more than 60 teams from six states and Mexico. They outscored teams with past regional champions and a NASA-sponsored team that won the world championship two years ago.
With this win, they will go to St. Louis and compete in the national competition.
Competition scores can be found at the The Blue Alliance.
Thanks to our alliance teammates for making it a possibility:
- 3937 – Breakaway from Searcy, AR
- 3946 – Tiger Robotics from Slidell, LA
AERIAL ASSISTSM is played by two competing Alliances of three robots each on a flat 25’ x 54’ foot field, straddled by a truss suspended just over five feet above the floor. The objective is to score as many balls in goals as possible during a two (2)-minute and 30-second match. The more Alliances score their ball in their goals, and the more they work together to do it, the more points their Alliance receives. Read more about the game.

NEW ORLEANS – Once the stuff of science fiction and cartoons, robots are becoming common place.
From car manufacturing to operating rooms to vacuum cleaners, simple robots are everywhere.
So what will the future bring?
Two organizations, Building Louisiana Science and Technolgy BLAST) and For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST,) are taking that question to today’s teenagers.
Barbara Pailet of BLAST and Jon Paul Tallman, a former Destrehan High School FIRST robot team member turned LSU electrical engineering major, joined Digital Gumbo’s Mark Lewis.
