ROBOTIC RIVALRY: While their robotic creation chews its way to victory in the first round of Robot Rivals on the DIY Network last April, the Rochester team of Geoff Dawson ’07, Tom Kollar ’04, and Eric Lunin ’04 gather to watch the debut. The show challenged teams of college students from around the country to design and build machines that could perform a specific function—in this case cut grass without a traditional mower’s blade or lawn trimmer’s spinning wire—within a day, and then face off in head-to-head competition. The Rochester team competes in the third round in an episode scheduled to air June 18 (Photo by Kurt Brownell).
