The man with the plans
On yet another overcast day in Baltimore, construction and
excavation crews on the Homewood campus meander through muddied
stretches of earth, weaving around pools of rainwater that dot
the landscape like craters on the moon.
Seemingly, around every bend are surveyors
peering through transits and people in hard hats hauling I-beams
and laying down brick upon brick. Overheard is the cacophony of
pounding sledgehammers, the roar of massive metal machines
scooping up piles of dirt, the thunderous engines of giant trucks
and foremen shouting out instructions that only the well-honed
ear could comprehend.
Robots on the run
With a little help from the Whiting School of
Engineering, 20 high school students from Baltimore Polytechnic
Institute spent part of their summer vacation learning how to
build high-tech robots. At the close of the four-week program,
the students brought their creations to the Homewood campus for a
demonstration and competition.
