The Lab and Assignment Schedule is tentative!
Theory assignments and Betabot lab assignments are due at start of lecture/recitation on the due day.
Veribot lab assignments are due at 22:00 on the due day.
Labs have a due date and time for Betabots (due at start of lecture/recitation) and a different due date and time for Veribots (due at 22:00).
