Attention all RAD groups,
The RAD Showcase Application opens today! We encourage everyone to apply through this form by November 14th 11:59PM. The RAD Showcase gives RAD groups the opportunity to present their projects to the EG teaching staff and members of the Tandon community. Groups will be selected to present their final presentations in Pfizer Auditorium on Monday, December 12th during lecture time. In order to be selected, your group must also be available for practice presentations in the Pfizer Auditorium on Monday, December 5th during lecture time. Based on the practice presentations, the top-ranked groups will advance to present on December 12 for the Gunter Georgi Award.
First place Gunter Georgi Award winners will be presented at Tandon Convocation and will be awarded $200 each with second place winners being awarded $100 each. Please feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
As we mentioned in lecture today, applications are now open for the RAD Innovation Grant. Open to all RAD grousp, this grant can supplement your $100 budget to purchase items for completion of your projects.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact your recitation instructors. The application deadline is 11/4/22 at 11:59 PM ET.
As Professor Bringarder mentioned during lecture on Monday, there is a tab on the website named "TA Nominations". This will take you to a Google form which will allow you to nominate a TA that you think did an exceptional job and would like them to be recognized. Those nominated will be reviewed for our monthly recognition!
As stated in lecture yesterday, the deadline for the initial portfolio will be for Milestone 3 rather than Milestone 2. Please disregard the deadline listed on your schedule and communicate with your recitation professor if you have any further questions regarding the assignment.
Dear EG 1004 students,
This is a reminder that MakerSpace Safety Orientation training is due for your lab 6 pre-lab assignment. We know that there have been a few difficulties signing up for the open training slots. If you have not attended the MakerSpace training yet, you should sign up for the next available training slots on the MakerSpace website. New slots open every day. If the only available slot is after your scheduled week, go ahead and sign up and send your Recitation Professor (and copy your Recitation Teaching Assistant and Writing Consultant) a screenshot of your scheduled time so that they can approve the extension. The final deadline is now the end of week 6 (end of day Saturday, October 15th), but we encourage you to attend the training as soon as possible. In a few weeks, the MakerSpace will send us a list of everyone who attended and completed the training, which will determine whether you received credit or a deduction for your Benchmark A assessment.
Also, a gentle reminder that for all emails you send to the instructors of your section you must email your Recitation Professor and copy your Teaching Assistant and Writing Consultant. Any grade disputes or extension requests must be reviewed by your Recitation Professor. Whenever you are responding make sure that you REPLY ALL. This is a critical professional practice - not only for this course, but everything you do in school and work - that prevents miscommunication and keeps relevant people in the loop. The subject of any email realated to the course should be EG 1004 Your Section Letter & Number: Issue that needs to be resolved, (e.g. EG 1004 D3: Follow up on competition lab 7 extra credit).
