A 2-quarter commitment is required. Completion of Psc 140, Psc 100, HDE 100A, or the equivalent. A 3.0 GPA


This is a fun lab where students work as part of a team with staff, post-docs and graduate students. There are opportunities for individual projects and honors projects for students who are in the lab for a period of time (e.g., after 2 quarters).
