What's happening with the Girls of Steel?

The Girls of Steel have had a "month long vacation" since championships, but we are ready to jump back on the wagon very soon! 

As for championships, it was one of the most exciting experiences of our lives. So many amazing people attended (Black Eyed Peas, Dean Kamen, Woodie Flowers, Kids from ALL OVER THE WORLD) and we were able to communicate in a special way through the coopertition and games. We took a defensive stance in the games (see the below picture of CRUSH in action!), something different than our previous regionals. It ended up allowing us to meet some really advanced and creative teams and robots. Overall, it was a fantastic learning experience and we can't wait until the next build season.

In the meantime, we are working on plans for the upcoming season. I've heard some rumors about a few pretty awesome surprises in store for the upcoming year!
