Grodecki has been developing his interest in electronics and robotics and building robots for the past two years. He first participated in the annual OCAD Sumo Robot Challenge last year, with Mostly Harmless, which lost against The Edge thanks to a driving error. He returned this year and conquered.

Grodecki, a member of the Ryerson Sumo Robotics Club, is proud of his accomplishments and will be starting his third year of the Electrical Engineering program at Ryerson University in September.
