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

32 high school robotics teams will come together to play Aerial Assist. Our goal is to provide an event where new teams, new drivers, and new members to the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) community are welcome.

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