A Helpful Message regarding the projects/ lab assignments…

Yes, we normally provide steps to follow and a general direction of what is necessary to complete the assignment… but they are not recipes… they are diving boards for exploration. Sometimes things do not work perfectly… that’s OK… note it in your lab book and continue. The intent is to provide the general direction… the assignment is intended for you to run with it and learn!!
