SXR375: Plants and Pigments

So yesterday a parcel arrived - it has in it the material for my next residential school coming up in July.
This is a 3rd level course investigating plants and pigments.

It arrives with
  • A folder
  • A folder insert
  • A course description
  • Some prereading material
  • A DVD
The school is all about analysis of plants and the way they use pigments to control their photosynthesis and manage energy and light issues. There is a computer marked multi choice paper that has to be done before hand (online) which you have to pass to complete the course.

Then there is the school itself, which includes presentation of results, and then a write up to do afterwards. Looks to be fun, and this time I have to take my own lab coat, so have ordered one.
