2012 Baltimore City Summer Robotics Scrimmages

116 teams. 240+ middle school students.
5 weeks of summer school to learn math & science and learn to build robots for 2 hours/day.

10 sites. 30 teachers.

2 days of scrimmages were held this week to show the students what competitions were like. 2 divisions - 6 matches each.

These scrimmages were successful because of 38 great volunteers (some pictured below) working with the staff. 8 of these volunteers are from AmeriCorps-NCCC, working in the classrooms and helping staff events for the summer. Shout out to Super Sonic Sparks and REX VRC teams for all their help.

Next up - the Olympiad on Aug. 1 for all the teams. Forget the VEX trophies. We are awarding gold medals.

I’m still recruiting for some event positions for Aug. 1. We will have over 100 volunteers.
For example,we are short on emcees.
