Summer School Poster Session Paper
In an attempt to provide the students with a more industrially meaningful experience when performing an experiment in the undergraduate Unit Operations Laboratory, design of experiment techniques have been combined with a current experiment to present a more "real world situation" to the student. Students choose three factors from a given list, determine which of the chosen factors have the greatest effect on a desired output response, and present their results to the class.
