Day 5 was the first official lab day for the Field School. Everyone gathers at the lab every Friday, and whenever Bob deems appropriate for projects, meetings, etc.
The main subject discussed was the individual project topics for the students, and how each student will be marked (because every topic is different, with different requirements). The projects were distributed, and each student was happy with their assignment because they were involved in the decision process.
It was interesting to hear Bob say that every field school is different in how they manage assignments, grading techniques, etc.
The first week is now completed, with six left to go. It went by really fast!
