Ask the Expert

I have gathered names of various "experts" who have agreed to communicate with your group regarding your topic. Once your message is prepared, provide me with a copy and I will e-mail your message to an expert. Once I receive a reply, I will make a printed copy of it and give it to your team. Please keep in mind that these people are very busy so it may take a few days to receive a reply.

If you know of someone personally who may be able to answer questions for your group, don't hesitate to contact that person for help.

Remember to keep a record of any correspondence, whether e-mail, snail mail, phone conversations or personal conversations, since this should be part of your finished product.

There are few restrictions on your team's design. Be creative!! Choose roles for each person so as to split up the work. Keep in mind that some work will need to be completed outside of class time. This project counts for a test grade. See me with any questions.

Most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!!!!
