"My favourite project was in a class (Material Culture Analysis) taught by my favourite prof, Bob Muir! I got to attempt to build an atlatl and dart using traditional technologies and then test it, using a range finder to see how far the dart flew! The best part? Bob handed me the range finder and said, "Go do some science." - Hannah Bailey
