Jan 17

 

As you probably know by now, NCSU has cancelled classes for Thursday, Jan 18th, due to the threat of bad weather. Therefore we've cancelled labs not only for Wednesday (from yesterdays snow day) and today, but also for the small Friday lab session - we're start with a clean slate next week!


Jan 16

 

As you probably know by now, NCSU has cancelled classes for Wednesday, Jan 17th, due to the threat of bad weather. Therefore those of you in Wednesdays lab section will start next week rather than this week.


Jan 07

 

New lab section open! Section 003, Fridays 1:30-4:20, is now available for students to move to from either of the other sections.


Dec 17

 

IMPORTANT : Labs start the SECOND week of classes!


Dec 17

 

You NEED to bring the following gunk to lab for the second lab session (third week of classes):

  1. ~1/2 liter of pond water - not something you'd ever consdier drinking
  2. ~1/2 liter of sediment - the blacker, smellier, and nastier, the better
  3. a pinch of rich soil or untreated compost - something that smells like dirt
  4. a rotten fruit - mildly acidic is best, think "yeasty"
  5. if you can get it, a marine sample of some kind (water, sand, sediment, aquarium filtrate, &c)
