Material methodology reports capture the knowledge produced in a semester-long project for reference and guidance in future investigations with material or methodological overlap. Collectively, these reports are intended to form an institutional memory and accelerate the progress by which individual projects proceed. On a basic level, the documents help future students with beginner tasks such as picking the best tools for the job, working within local restraints, or sourcing a material for the cheapest price. On a more complex level, documented projects may inspire offshoots that collectively form a branch of in-depth exploration impossible for a single student to pursue over the course of an individual education.
