Service Description

This intriguing class will discuss some special aspects of plant biology that make us think about what plants really are. We will briefly cover how plants adapt to specialised environments, with special emphasis on carnivorous plants. We will try to discuss the following questions: what is carnivory in plants? Why are they carnivorous? What are the different types of carnivorous plants and how do they work? How did plants become carnivorous? The class will be in the format of a lecture with videos and discussions, and includes a quiz. The students will gain skills of reasoning and questioning, problem solving, and learn some scientific language that enable them to think critically.

Cancellation Policy

We will do our utmost to ensure every booked class takes place. However, we strongly believe in the value of conversation between thinkers. Thus, we will not run a class with less than the minimum number of students. If we do not have a full group 24 hours before the class is set to start we will, sadly, cancel the session, refund all participants, and seek to run the class at a different time. Our full booking and cancellation policy can be found in our Terms and Services.
