The Rossell Hope Robbins Library is underutilized by many students on campus due to the lack of awareness of the library and its resources. To promote awareness for the library, this project contains designs for a “life-size” portable chess set with medieval themes.
Minimize nickel contamination of cleaning tanks in Orafol Precision Technology’s electroforming process.
Limit entry of abrasive sediment into India Mark II handpump for Ugandan Water Project.
Optimize creation of composites combining under-utilized hemp fabrics with epoxy.
Using a rope of LEDs, connected to a Raspberry Pi with our software, we will read the audio signal from an HDMI cable and display colors on the LED strip that match the tone of the music. . The goal of our project is to be able to create a visualization to convey a similar feeling to people that are unable to hear the music.

Identify inexpensive process for in-house purification of motion picture film dye for Kodak.
Automation of feedstock delivery for creation of biochar, a product of biomass pyrolysis, thermal decomposition in the absence of oxygen.
Controlled, rapid-cooling chamber for initiated chemical vapor deposition of thin film polymers.
Enable self-sustaining biochar production by reclamation of process by-products.
Create building materials for developing countries from waste plastic and biochar, and compare to concrete standard.
Analysis of organic light-emitting diode (OLED) chemical solutions’ inkjet printability through range of solution concentrations.
We are tasked by Rochester Rehab to create a device that increases the efficiency of packaging an underwater camera into a foil bag, primarily by reducing friction on the camera. By doing so, more cameras will be packaged per hour and the wage of the workers who are employed in the process will increase.
