Abstract Title: Intermediate Lab at NEIU
Abstract: Intermediate Lab (Physics 330) is a 3-credit, stand-alone lab course that is required for all physics majors at NEIU.  Students typically perform four experiments in some detail (in addition to a 'warm-up' experiment).  Experiments fall into several broad (and overlapping) categories of 'classics', 'new classics', 'surveys', 'design your own', and a few experiments that may be unique to NEIU.  Students are encouraged to pursue experiments of particular interest to them.  All students also write up one of their experiments in the format of a (short) research paper, and make an oral presentation on one of the experiments they have done.  Various experiments that are done, including some of the students own interests, will be presented.
