Yesterday consisted of clarifying and condensing our experiment as we get ready for it in practice. I’m worried now that we’ve gone too bare-bones with these new changes and that our research paper will be incredibly sparse. I’m also worried that these changes will reduce the novelty of our experiment- I don’t expect this study to add significant information to the field, but it should contribute something. That being said, I do feel like the Drones team has been collaborating well, considering how we worked at the beginning of the summer. Supposedly today or tomorrow, we will be returning to the justice center to create experimental materials. Hopefully, that’s the case. I don’t want to be involved in more time crunches than I already am.
There are a couple of things to alter with the pre and post-study questionnaire. We have to create a map of the clearing area and append it to our questionnaires (easy tasks to be done today). We also need to get our research paper and poster drafted.
