March Madness for Robotics comes early;
Baltimore Robotics Center to host first ever RoboCEO Challenge Charity Event

Baltimore, Md. (March, 11,2014)—The Baltimore Robotics Center, the region’s dedicated space for aspiring young  engineers, will be holding a charity tournament to benefit teams in the Vex High School Robotics League, featuring area CEOs as contestants.

43e2ab1717e2b22f66a8d2ad4cdc3065On Sunday, March 30th from 4-7pm, area robotics teams will be matched with executives and teach them how to drive their competition robots. The executives will then compete against each other in a bracket-style robotics tournament. Taking place at the Baltimore Robotics Center located at 1001 West Pratt Street, the event is an excellent opportunity for business people to get a first-hand experience of the results a strong STEM education can have on the region.

“Our goal for this event is to raise awareness for STEM education, to raise money for participating schools’ teams, and to allow students to experience networking with potential future employers,” says Ed Mullin, founder of the Baltimore Robotics Center. “It’s almost like an internship fair, but the environment will be more laid back so that students who are very bright but lack the professional refinement will feel more comfortable talking with the region’s tech employers.”

CEOs who participate will play in a VEX “Toss-up” style tournament under the supervision of experienced members of Baltimore area high school competitive robotics teams. The VEX Robotics Competition, operated by the Robotics Education and Competition Foundation, is a program that inspires thousands of students worldwide to pursue STEM-related education and career paths. While there are many quality robotics competitions worldwide, the VEX Robotics user community has overwhelmingly demanded new challenges that are easy and economical to host and implement.
