Eldersburg Robo-Lions Win Battle O' Baltimore, Again

The high school robotics team won the championship for the second year in a row.

The Robo-Lions Robotics Team, comprised of students from Liberty, Century and South Carroll High Schools, brought home a trophy and the champion title from the Battle O' Baltimore at New Town High School this past weekend.

Teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia and DC participated in the competition.

FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, and was founded 20 years ago to promote and encourage student involvement in challenging science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields, according to a news release.

The program grew from small events in the Northeast, to more than 50 regular season events each spring. Students can continue to modify and compete their robots, built in just six frenetic weeks, each winter after being given a new challenge, in the growing number of ‘off-season’ events like the Battle O’ Baltimore.

Liberty High School has sponsored a team for the past six years, according to the release.

The team’s next event will be the Duel on the Delaware in Carney’s Point, NJ on Oct. 13.

New members are being recruited for the Robo-Lions and other high school teams. A parent and student information session will be held Thursday, Sept. 20 at Liberty High School in the Technology classroom. Contact Mr. Al Deming for information (acdemin@carrollk12.org).
