In this course you will work with a team to generate concept documents for idea generation, to evaluate concept documents, to create mini-proposals for an apparatus to test your idea, review mini-proposals, and finally how to produce Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) or Manuals as needed to document how to maintain and operate the apparatus. Intended for Graduate Students, Senior Undergraduates, or Postdoctoral Researchers interested in developing physical experimental equipment.
