Team meeting time preferences are now being handled through a separate form linked on the course home page. Be sure to fill out that form as well!!!

On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, each team will be assigned a 3-4 hour period each day in which that team will have access to lab facilities (e.g, Pappalardo or PDL). There will not be any lab facility access outside of this time period. Lab capacity is limited, so not all team members may use the lab at this time and teams will be coordinating which team members will have access to the lab facilities. The goal is to assign lab access times so that at least some team members will be able to utilize the assigned lab facility time and each team member has availability for at least part of one of the assigned lab facility times. To do this, we need to know what your schedule is for Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

What conflicts do you have with each of the following lab facility access periods? Please be specific and name both the conflict and the exact time period of the conflict (e.g., 2.008 lab 9am-12pm).
