Tuesday was an exciting day at Girls of Steel! Dr. Chris Atkeson, a professor at Carnegie Mellon University who inspired the robot Baymax in the new movie Big Hero 6 came to speak to us! He told us how he was involved and the reality of inflatable robots. He also passed out action figures of Honey Lemon and GoGo Tomago! In fact, Girls of Steel played a part in inspiring these characters, when Disney visited us in 2011.
We also had our second day of the End of Preseason Project! The girls made lots of progress: junior and new members finished the chassis; programmers tested code; returning members worked on the manipulator. Go Blue Team! (and Orange Team!) Next week, we look forward to our last preseason meeting, to finishing our robots and getting a chance to compete!
