Victor Espinoza – Update 8

This week I worked on the midterm presentation and report. I revised the previous software flowcharts to make sure that they agreed with our group’s current focus for the project.

I also helped fill out the different sections for the midterm report including the finished tasks and the tasks that still need to be completed. Our group is running behind schedule in finishing the project, but if everyone in the group participates equally and effectively, then we should be able to get the project done in time.

Here are the completed tasks:

  1. I say we submit all this scientific data to National Geographic. What a world of experience we have from all over the nai#&n!Iot8217;m pretty quick to squash anything that moves, but a window specimen sounds kinda nice! Hugs… : )
