Application: Knight Lab Spring 2017
Thanks for your interest in the Student Lab. Applications are due by 10am on Fri., Feb. 10.

The Lab is running *six* projects and is accepting students into the course via application. You can find a longer description of the class and one-sheets describing the projects in detail here: knightlab.com/class

This course is constructed as a lab—teams of students work on a single problem for 10 weeks. We’re looking for driven, motivated students with the curiosity and determination to drive a project from start to finish. You should be comfortable with ambiguity, and have a strong desire to identify lines of questioning and paths to find the answers. We expect students to spend six hours a week on the project outside of class, preferably with your team, preferably in the Lab. Synthesizing the work you do and communicating it clearly to your teammates and to the instructional team will be crucial; you should expect to spent a portion of each week doing this.

We're looking to assemble diverse, multidisciplinary teams of students with a variety of experiences; please be honest in your answers and take the time to look at your other coursework to determine that you have the time and energy to put into a team-based project this quarter.

We will meet Tu/Th 10-11:50 a.m.

TL;dr: Successful applicants will take the time to read this ^^.

Any questions can be directed to Emily Withrow (e-withrow@northwestern.edu) and Zach Wise (wise@northwestern.edu).
