Field Trip Organization
We have arranged
field trips. You will receive course credit for attending one field trip and
submitting a field trip report on it (i.e., the field trip is mandatory). Projects typically can
accommodate up to 25 students on a visit. Field trip dates and locations are posted on the class
website on http://bspace.berkeley.edu. Please use the website to tell us which one you will
participate in. At least one day before the scheduled field trip date, make sure that you have the
directions to the site you signed up to visit.
If for some reason you have to cancel your attendance, let Prof. Tommelein (

Students showing up with inappropriate clothing will NOT be allowed to tour the site and this
will be considered non-attendance.
