Tom Harris came to Caltech with an undeclared major, thinking he would study computer science. But, having been an avid Lego builder as a kid, he was drawn to mechanical engineering. He also has an interest in medieval history, which similarly dates back to his childhood—he loved pirates and knights, and both his parents were history majors—and after he took Brown's medieval history class, his impression of the study of history changed.

Growing up, Katie Brennan didn't have a lot of opportunities to travel. So when she started her biology studies at Caltech, one of her main goals was to explore the world. Thanks to a plenitude of funding from the Institute, Brennan—a graduating senior—can now cross two more continents and the mountains of Washington State off her list.

A rover designed and built by Caltech undergraduate students will compete later this week in the RASC-AL Explorational Robo-Ops Competition at NASA's Johnson Space Center. The four-wheeled robot will be controlled by a group of students who will be located back on campus, in the basement of Spalding Laboratory.
