What’s HBO?

Kidding aside, Soledad O’Brien is a pretty awesome correspondent to have cover FRC. She does a lot of work involving education.

Team 66 is one of the teams being featured in the Real Sports segment on FIRST.

We had Soledad O’Brian in our shop the day before stop build day (film crew hung around into Tuesday). So not only did we have the normal “stress” of stop build day, we had to work around the film crew.

Here are a couple of our students posing for a quick photo with Soledad after interviews.


She’s been around FRC before…
