I don't know what it is, but the prof has dropped some tantalizing hints.
1) It will take us the entire remaining 5 weeks to accomplish
2) We will probably spend the first week arguing in groups. (which means it will be a group project)
3) We will apply what we have learned making models (so presumably a group model?)
4) Monday we are to show up with sketch-pad and raincoat in case it rains.
As a couple of dear friends said... "You'd think pants and pencils would be on the things to bring list."
