Raffle Points

To encourage creativity and class participation, this course will feature a unique concept called "raffle points." Students will earn points in class and by applying the results of technical assignments in creative ways, and at the end of the course students can cash out on their raffle points to buy entries into raffles for different items related to the course. Larger items will cost more raffle points per entry.
