This page provides an overview of the course schedule, with a particular focus on the lab component and the order in which each demo group performs the experiments.
NOTE: Only the first experiment is performed by all demo groups in the same week. In all subsequent weeks, each demo group will be performing a different experiment. These are subdivided into two main blocks. Full details for each experiment, along with the pre-lab questions and required preparation, are provided in the lab manual.
Groups 101-103 are in the Monday (PRA0101) lab section, groups 201-203 in Tuesday (PRA0201), and groups 301-303 in Wednesday (PRA0301).
