Industrial Design graduates and innovative rower featured in Philadelphia Inquirer

Industrial Design graduates Dan Tafe ’09 and Tim Poiesz ’09 and their innovative design for a new rowing machine were featured in a May 28 Philadelphia Inquirer story, “Philadelphia University students answer a technology challenge.”  The pair spent the better part of a year designing the Benson rower, named for former New Hampshire Gov. Craig Benson, an avid rower who issued the challenge for students to build a rowing machine that would truly simulate being on the open water.  Michael Leonard, associate professor of Industrial Design, Chris O’Brien, crew coach, and President Spinelli also were featured in the article.
