What is the Battle O’ Baltimore?

What is the Battle O’ Baltimore?
A competition of the mind

36 high school robotics teams will come together to play FIRST STEAMworks.  Our goal is to provide an event where new teams, new drivers, and new members to the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) community are welcome and can engage in friendly competition.

We are proud to continue our development of this event as one of the premiere off-season competitions on the East Coast.

The 2017 FRC Game

The 2017 FRC Game

In FIRST STEAMWORKS, two Alliances of three robots each are on a Quest to breach their opponents’ fortifications, weaken their tower with boulders, and capture the opposing tower.  Robots score points by breaking opponents’ defenses and scoring boulders through goals in the opposing tower.  During the final 20 seconds of the Quest, robots may surround and scale the opposing tower to capture it.
