Lab Schedule

This page is a work in progress -- I have moved the schedules from the old page but they are not updated. The new google site doesn't give me an easy way to make a schedule like I had with the old page, but I'm working on a work-around (I'm messing with coding HMTL, and you'll see my in-progress attempt). Again, these are not updated so take them with a grain of salt. However, the dates portion below is correct. -- 7:38 A.M., 9/12/2021


N.B., All non-Monday meetings are intended to be remote during the fall quarter. Monday meetings are to be discussed individually.
