Hi all,

Just a reminder that your project is due next Wed!  We don’t have school next week UNTIL Wed, so MAKE SURE YOU HAVE IT HERE AND READY TO GO – as in SET UP during class.

We will set up all the project and have the other class members have a look at them.

Pretend it is REALLY Expo – bring any 3D visuals, props, etc that you need.

I won’t see you again until then…feel free to email me over the weekend if you have questions 🙂
