Team 1719, The Umbrella Corporation, is a FIRST Robotics Competition team based at The Park School of Baltimore, Maryland.

Our Team as an Umbrella

The team was created in 2006 at The Park School in Pikesville, MD. We think of ourselves as an "umbrella team," consisting not only of students from Park, but also reaching out to other local high school students to allow them the FRC experience.

Our Team's Vision

We inspire young people and the community around us to appreciate the importance of science and technology in our lives and in our society by...

  • Engaging high school students together with technical and engineering professionals in a challenging competition to design and build a functional robot
  • Participating in public demonstrations of our accomplishments to inspire others to participate
  • Working with other FRC teams in the Baltimore area to promote the cause and value of FIRST robotics in this region
  • Exposing students to the design methods and tools used by professional engineers
  • Extending the opportunity to join our team to students who don't have FRC programs in their own schools


1719 is divided into five main specialized groups that handle different areas of robot design, including device design, electrical work, programming, etc. Learn more about our subteams
