2015 Battle O' Baltimore FIRST Robotics Competition

Saturday, September 267:00am–3:00pm

The 9th annual Battle O' Baltimore is an off-season FIRST Robotics Competition hosted by the Baltimore Area Alliance teams. This event allows new team members a chance to experience a friendly competition before the new build and competition season starts in January 2016.

Come meet the teams of teenagers and watch the action. Witness the ethos of “Gracious Professionalism” where the students learn to build robots and compete like crazy, but treat each other with respect and kindness.

The game is "Recycle Rush." The atmosphere is part rock concert - part sporting competition with 120-lb robots stacking totes and recycling containers to score amongst a flurry of pool noodles with the help of their human players and robot alliance partners.

There will also be demos of the other FIRST programs: Jr. FIRST LEGO League (Jr.FLL) ages 6-9; FIRST LEGO League (FLL) ages 9-14; & FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) grades 7-12.

WHO: All ages welcome.

TOUR: A 30-minute "FIRST Stop" behind-the-scenes tour will be available to all Baltimore Innovation Week attendees.
