Girls of Steel is the name of this Robotics team sponsored by Carnegie Mellon University. Girls from the Pittsburgh area were invited to participate and have been taking robotics classes since October.
The team built two robots, “Crush” and “Squirt” for this year’s competition. Crush is designed to hang inflated plastic shapes onto a grid, for which the team will receive points during each match. Squirt is a small electro-mechanical minibot, which will race on a vertical pole to earn points.
How totally kewl!
