Project Success 2015 Expectations
As part of being in the Project Success Program, we have set the following expectations:
  1. Attend all Friday Seminars
  2. Hand in time sheets every Friday
  3. Keep a lab notebook; update it daily.
  4. Write a research abstract and manuscript
  5. Prepare an oral presentation
  6. Submit an abstract to the New England Science Symposium (College only).

As Project Success interns, you represent not only yourself but also the Project Success program. We expect you to:



Show good work ethic

Come to work prepared to begin at 9 am - this means get to work a little before 9 am. If you find yourself without things to do, ask for a paper to read or ask a colleague if you can watch what they are doing. You can work on your weekly assignments also. Do not spend time on Facebook, playing games, or anything that is not related to your research. Show up to our workshops on time. If you don’t know where the location is, either leave early to make sure you can find the workshop, or, go find the location the day before so that you know how to get there. Google the location, use the map on our website, or ask someone!



Be pleasant to work with

Smile, introduce yourself to the people that you work near, and say hi when you see them. Come with the attitude that you are ready to learn from your mentors and peers. Remember that they are sharing their time with you, so you should appreciate the time that they are giving you. If you are asked to do something, do it. If you don’t understand something, then ask. If you make a mistake, don’t stress about it but make sure to tell your lab mentor. Learning is about making mistakes, but you can’t learn from them unless you tell someone.



Be aware of lab culture

Don’t spread your things around space that is not yours. Make sure to ask before taking anything - pipettes, tools, equipment, reagents. If it is not yours, then you should ask if you can use it. Lab people can be prickly about their things! Try to stay clean - don’t touch things without gloves, and if you have to sneeze, do it away from the lab area.



Dress Appropriately

Regardless of how your lab mates dress, we expect you to dress according to Project Success standards. This means:

If you are in a wet lab:
  • Close-toed shoes
  • Pants or Long Skirts (to the ankles) - no shorts!
  • Shirt that does not expose too much skin
  • Lab coat, goggles, and gloves when you are working at the bench. ALWAYS!
If you are in dry lab (computer lab)
  • Dress neatly. Try to wear clothes that do not expose too much skin, no short shorts or skirts.
