Thursday Homework Activity
We ask that you go outside (if you can do so safely) and pick an object that represents what you took from day one of the Virtual Advancing EE Conference. If you missed day one, feel free to select an object that embodies the spirit of your work. Then, post a photo or video of your object to our Virtual ShareFair Board and explain why you selected that item.
