Wade's Warriors consists of six intellectual individuals:  Ryan
Bradly, Leslie Cruise, Charles Henderson, Jeremy Jones, Ashley Nenninger,
and Jamie Salvo.  The membersŐ project helped draw attention to PCBs while
informing the class of this harmful group of chemicals.  The group
scheduled many meetings to complete the project.  However, personal
schedules conflicted with some of the times and dates of meetings.
Eventually every member contributed time and effort to the project, which
enabled the project to be completed.  Research, decision-making, and
studying were actions used to outline the project.  The services available
from the Internet as well as past research allowed the group to access
information necessary to complete our project on PCBs.
	The group searched for roughly two hours on the Internet for a
topic to conduct the research necessary for the project.  One group
memberŐs previous knowledge aided in narrowing the topic selection.  Most
group meetings were held at Ellis Library as well surrounding computer
labs.   Cumulative time spent on the project amounted to 12 hours via
3-four hour sessions.  Every member found two to three articles upon which
the validity of the article was voted on among the remainder of the group.
One advantage to working in a group was that information was more easily
obtained in a quicker amount of time.    Individual thought coupled with
group rationale provided the means of gathering the research for the
project.  Another advantage to working in the group was that it is
obviously more fun than working alone.  The only problem encountered was
the conflicts in schedule.
	The project allowed each member to learn collaboratively.  Each
member gained insight into otherŐs ideas and views of chemisty as well as
other topics of interest.  Interactions between members grew from the time
and hard work put into the project.  Wade's Warriors feel that this
project benefited not only themselves but also others in organic
chemistry.  The project was an educational activity and would be a
disappointment for future organic chemistry 210 students not to engage in
this activity.  The project, while educational and fun, also provides a
nice cushion of points for students who may not have performed well on
previous tests but are hard workers and creative in their contributions to
the group.
