Lessons/suggestions It is best to make sure that all students are aware of the projects that are being undertaken, this will help with the attendance of events by the students and other interested participants. Equipment and literature should be on hand so that every participent will have the opportunity to take part in the clinic and "get a feel" for what they are doing.
