Scheduling Notes *
Occasionally EE Scientists have a lecture or meeting that overlaps a field trip. Please let me know 1) When that time is and during which day(s) 2) Your plan for covering that gap (ex: "my grad student _____ will join for just that day/gap as a sub" or "my grad student _____ will be with us for all interactions with the students and we'll work together as a team for the semester" or "I don't have a concrete plan and would like some help")

If you already know the grad student or co-scientist who will be working with you during this semester please let me know their name, phone number and email address.
