Hello team!

Amie, Laurel, Alex, Tina met upon Thursday 12/9 night. We each read our statements, discussed our ideas and how to structure our proposal. This is the flow- open the proposal with a general paragraph, then describe what each of us are doing, and wind it up with speculations on our collaborative  exercises and outcomes. We also set up this blog. (if anyone would like to add to this post- please do.)

We titled the blog- machineofnature

Laurel has left today to observe the Tanzmanian Devil. Bon Voyage!
