July 2015 Team Field Trip

Our team recently went on a field trip to Pittsburgh. We were able to tour three different places during this outing.

Our first stop was the Archolab at Carnegie Mellon University. Assistant Professor Joshua Bard was kind enough to show our group his robots and how they operate.
