Another week gone bye. This week has been fairly quiet. I have taken into account all of the feedback I have received, and refined my lab design as much as possible. I have arranged a meeting with Dr. Blake( the professor of microbiology at Fort Lewis College.) on Friday. From this meeting I hope to gain access to his resources and lab. I also found that I need to become more adept at explaining my project. I learned this through a gallery walk which was performed wednesday. I attempted to explain my project, and was met with only blank stares. I foresee issues with this and also with the time allotted for this project. Obviously, I will continue my project even after the six weeks given to us, but I worry about loss of credibility when transitioning between a “school project” to the crazed questions of a 16 year old. I do think that I will be able to accomplish my project in this time however. I hope to begin my lab work as soon as my materials arrive, which will be hopefully be some time in the middle of next week.
