This project would not have been possible
without the help of so many kind people. First I would like to
thank all the people at CCAT that helped out with
with this project – especially CCAT
Co-directors Glenn Howe, Noelle
and former co-director, Jeff Adams for their input and expertise.
Their advice and assistance were indispensable. Also, I would like
to thank my friend Brandt for all the days he came out to help me make
and apply the cob and for the use of his truck at Granite Construction.
Thank you to all of ENGR 305 students (some of whom are in the picture
above) who helped out on the cob lab day
and, of course, thanks to our enthusiastic instructor Lonny Graffman for his advice and encouragement.
My group mates, Natalie Davies and Alexandra Monty, were also helpful and always ready to
answer my questions. I hope that their projects were fulfilling and come out great as well. All the great volunteers that came out and
lent their time and effort were also very much appreciated. I'm
also grateful to Marty Reed
who cut the plexi-glass for the window in the bench, to Arcata
Recycling for donating some of the glass, and to the Oceanography
department for donating the seashells and fossils. Finally, thank
you to anyone else who has been involved and invested time and energy
into this project. Thank you so very
