Review of Laboratory Structure and Plan

  • Hybrid Model
    • Students are divided into 8-person cohorts.
    • Each cohort attends la in person approximately 8 times during the semester.
      • In-person lab sessions are ~1.75 hours per cohort.
    • Students who are unable to attend lab in person will receive laboratory information via an online format.
  • Week One will be via Zoom for all students.
  • Labs begin the first week of the semester! (August 17th, 2020)

Teaching Assistants (TA) will contact students prior to Week oNe with Zoom log-in information. Be on the lookout for an e-mail from your TA!

  • TA contact information will be posted on the Canvas page for the course, under the "Syllabus" tab.
