2015 Battle O' Baltimore FIRST Robotics Competition
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 â€œGracious Professionalismâ€ 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.
