This report will outline how effectively we met our academic and mentoring objectives. I have listed below both the academic and mentoring objectives put forth in the original proposal and have outlined how they were met or modified over the course of the past two years. Let me just start out by saying how proud I am of my undergraduate team of researchers. They have been absolutely AMAZING and have taken this project on with incredible autonomy. Although we are a bit behind our anticipated schedule (due to the autonomy that I have tried to foster with the students), the careful and meticulous planning we have done and slow and deliberate pace will result in more effective outcomes and a greater growing experience for students.
