Regarding the extra credit opportunity, to receive extra credit you must write a 1 page report on either this past Monday's guest lecture or next Monday's lecture and submit it in week 10 lab. No late submissions will be accepted.
The paper should first summarize the lecture talk then discuss some current state of the art research in the lecturer's topic area. This second part must be based on your own investigation and should go beyond the lecture material. This second part should be the majority of the paper.
Note that if you received credit for the Alumni Connections event in engineers week, you can not receive additional credit for this.
