Engineering Success

This year, we have gone beyond just planning experiments. We have troubleshooted each design aspect of our project, presenting multiple alternatives should they fail. This has been done for both our wet lab and hardware components. We have had great fun in doing this and hope you have fun reading this too! Here’s a PDF of the document shown here.

Experimental Design Only
