    30. 30.  “Culture Lab has been a great experience, because it has brought a tangible, hands-on component to in- class work and discussion. I think Culture Lab adds another dimension to learning in this way, that in many humanities classes, is hard to accomplish…. Usually, books and articles are my tools to learn. Now, I get to see and touch real objects from the period I am studying, which is a bit more exciting than flipping through the pages of a textbook.”
