Update for Week 3

Thank you all for being patient with the mic building session last week. I'm sorry that we had such problems with the supplies (mics in particular) and a shortage of soldering equipment. But a shipment of extra soldering wands has arrived, and so we will be able to set up more stations and hopefully avoid some of the backlog we had last week. Our goal is to have everyone done with their mics and ready to go.

So, tomorrow let's meet in B-91 for some brief announcements before we split off into the various breakout rooms.

In order to accommodate more students, Lilly Czarnecki will be leading an early soldering session in B-53 (or one of the available labs) starting at 1:30. Please e-mail Lilly to confirm your attendance (

If you haven't already, download and install Audacity.

Both of these procedures are covered in the syllabus:
