In the 2017-2018 school year, a new experimental introductory biology laboratory will be added to courses offered at WPI. This experimental class will be a combination of the BB2901 and BB2905 course curriculums. Throughout this project, I examined recent research geared towards new and effective approaches to laboratory science education, student surveys, and the objectives and schedules for both BB2901 and 2905 as they stand today. In doing so, I have recommended a one-term, 1/3 credit course curriculum that combines the current classes, while still meeting all pertinent objectives.
