||Targeted Student Experiences in a Superconductivity Lab
||The transition of an undergraduate student from a guided-inquiry introductory lab to independent research requires substantial growth. This transition is about more than understanding how to use more complicated equipment and data analysis skills. It is especially important that students have the experience of debugging equipment and encountering the limits of measurement techniques, which is possible in the advanced lab curriculum. They encounter these challenges within the context of measuring the superconducting temperature of an unknown material. The experiment and the intentional problems students encounter will be presented.
