2011 Kickoff: Girls of Steel!

Last Saturday, after many weeks of anxious anticipation, the Girls of Steel participated in the 2011 FIRST FRC Competition Kickoff event, hosted locally by Carnegie Mellon University.  Working with the veteran teams to brainstorm proved extremely beneficial to our rookie team.  The atmosphere that Pittsburgh FRC created was simply amazing.  Below are some photos taken at the event.
