The Maryland Robotics Alliance (MRA) was formally founded in 2016. The MRA is an evolution of the Baltimore Area Alliance, which has been serving the Maryland FIRST community since 2007.
The MRA exists to promote the growth and sustainability of robotics teams in the state of Maryland by focusing on the recruitment, training, and support of team mentors.
As part of our mission, MRA conducts annual events for FIRST teams in the Maryland and surrounding areas:
- Back to Build Dinner, an evening with your fellow mentors to re-orient yourself to the build season.
- Battle Of Baltimore, an off-season FRC event.
- Education Day, a multi-track robotics education seminar.
