CRUISE CONTROL: Travis Block ’12, a biomedical engineering major from San Antonio, Texas, demonstrates a three-wheeled bicycle that can be steered with one arm. He and his team developed the prototype for their senior design project in engineering. The bicycle was one of several projects developed during the year-long course, a capstone requirement in which students work with health care, disability, and other Rochester-area agencies to conceive, design, and prototype devices that address a need among the agencies’ constituents.
