|Will is not amused with 0.1% efficiency|
The most shocking case for me is when I was doing the equivalents of 8.13 and 8.14 at Cambridge. There were two projects that stood out for me: particle physics and ferrofluids. For those of you about to break out in hives, no I will not be talking about physics again (refer to blog #1) but I am just sharing the experience.

Yes, this was on a Strokes album cover
|Yeah this stuff is really cool|
Now, I didn't share this story to put myself on pedestal. Who knows how many people would have gotten this far! Alas, I have alot of respect for 109's emphasis on working on novel projects. You won't get many opportunities to do this in your other lab classes and I think that you'll come to appreciate it later on. Although I am not too familiar where to start a novel biological engineering project, it has been loads of fun discussing different, pie-in-the sky solutions with Arinze. So far, our projects have varied from separating chiral molecules with chemistry techniques to designing neural wires (resembling our solar panels now) to finally designing genetic circuits. I hope that everyone is enjoying their opportunity to explore the field of biological engineering and discovering new paths that you didn't consider before.
You just gotta have a little bit of:
