2) Main lesson (explains the topic thoroughly, providing examples)
3) Hands on experience using BBL instrumentation or lab technology
4) Group discussion of results (evaluation of material learned and data analysis)

Once comfortable with the workshop and instrumentation, students and faculty are encouraged to further their new skills in the actual lab setting.
