Holiday Lights Parade Recap:

This past winter, Team RUSH once again teamed up with our community to put on the annual Holiday Lights Parade! This was our first parade in two years so we couldn't have been more excited to bring everyone together under the lights.

The theme was Toyland in C-Town and our parade entries did not disappoint! We saw everything from spinning Rubik's Cubes to toy wagons and had a super fun time despite the cold and windy weather.

Clarkston Robotics Rebooted!!

Clarkton is offering five different levels of Robotics for the 2021-22 season. Currently all teams are filled, but please check back with us next August if you are interested for the 2022 season! Click here for more information.

FLL Junior, FLL, & FTC Fall Programs - September 21st - November 2nd 2021.

Due to COVID-19, Team RUSH students have been restricted from holding in-person RUSH FLL Junior, FLL, & FTC fall camps for the past two years. Fortunately for us, we were able to start the programs up once again this fall and even include a new level of LEGO robotics: FLL discover! During these programs, RUSH students mentor small groups of young-learners, teaching them all about LEGO robots, FIRST core values, and the engineering process.

On November 6th 2021, Team RUSH will be back to hosting our annual FLL Junior Show Me event, and we are so excited to be able to showcase all of our students' hard work!

2021 Kettering Offseason Invitational - September 18, 2021

Competitions are back! Team RUSH’s first competition since February 2020 happened on September 18, 2021 at the Kettering Invitational Kickoff event, a competition held and hosted at Kettering University, this year the game was Infinite Recharge. The game was first released in the 2020 season, and with what seemed like an infinitely long break due to COVID Team RUSH was able to recharge and come back as good as ever. RUSH took second place along with CowTown Robotics and Metal Muscle out of over forty teams. Team RUSH not only made this return to the stadium a success on the field, but also an enjoyable, action-packed, fun-filled weekend.
