On October 18, 2017, the Interdisciplinary Workshop on the dissemination of knowledge on “Intellectual Information Technologies in Education and Science” took place at the Faculty of Chemistry and Biology of the Ternopil National Pedagogical University (TNPU).
The co-organizers of this event were Andriy and Natalia Hertz, employees of the Department of General Biology and Methodology of Natural Sciences Teaching and the Department of Botany and Zoology (Faculty of Chemistry and Biology of TNPU).
According to the program, a demonstration of the possibilities of IT solutions in biological, educational and pedagogical research took place.
In particular, the on-line PhotosynQ platform was presented as a web tool for an integrated assessment of the physiological state of plants.
Information was disseminated on how the MultispeQ can measure, collect and analyze photosynthesis data in field and laboratory conditions.
The focus was on the openness and flexibility of the PhotosynQ platform and the development of educational tools through it, and more.
The students and faculty all wished to have the opportunity to work with MultispeQ and PhotosynQ and to evaluate the condition of plants for themselves.
Learn the MultispeQ v1.0 and the PhotosynQ platform.
This is a 3 day intensive workshop to learn and share best practices, experimental design, data analysis, and hardware modification on devices in the PhotosynQ platform with a focus on the MultispeQ v1.0 device.
Dates: Oct 14 – 16, 2016
Location: East Lansing MI
We already have a great group of attendees with backgrounds in plant breeding, plant science, arboriculture, and citizen science from academia and the private sector. Join us!
To keep the workshop small and personal, tickets are limited so sign up soon.
We had our first PhotosynQ day-long workshop on April 22nd at Michigan State. We had over 90 attendees, 9 breakout sessions ranging from education to data analysis, and posters from 12 beta testers. You can see almost all of the main and breakout sessions on our YouTube Channel.
We discussed everything from abiotic stress, what photosynthesis parameters mean (there’s a nice overview by Professor David Kramer in there which I’d suggest), the new features coming in the MultispeQ V1.0, alternative uses of the platform for microbial detection and measuring coral bleaching, use of the MultispeQ in Africa, and lots lots more. Definitely check it out!
