Founded by inventor Dean Kamen, FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and  Technology) and its Robotics Competitions have swept the nation, engaging more than  300,000 students in science and technology this year. FIRST helps students discover the rewarding world of innovation and engineering with the help of more than 100,000 adult volunteers and mentors.

During the competition season, teams had 6 weeks to design, build, and test robots to play this  year’s game called “Ultimate Ascent.” The official FRC competition events are held in March and April.  Off-season events are organized by local groups to provide additional competition opportunities and exposure to FIRST. The game is played based on the rules established during the regular season. The goal of off-season events is to train new members and entice the interest of potential participants. FIRST competitions have been described as “the Super Bowl of Smarts.”

Teams at the Battle O’ Baltimore will be representing several states with many local teams  participating. This is the premier event in the Baltimore area for the off-season. Battle O’ Baltimore is an exciting event for all ages, including children. Come learn how you can help build tomorrow’s engineers and scientists through this great  program.  Guided tours of pits available!
