We visit Pittsburgh, the former steel-manufacturing hub in Western Pennsylvania. The home of three rivers, strong sports teams, and multiple universities, we see a high school girls' team construct robots for a competition. We also attend a picnic, visit the top of a mountain, and worship with a Baptist church.
