The “Coaster Club” is a combination of two other popular Gatherings The Pub Club hosts: “The Mug Club” and PI Q&A Day. Unlike The Mug Club, which is one guest joining a TPC gathering to lead a discussion, The Coaster Club consists of multiple guests joining TPC to form a panel. Another difference is, while a Coaster Club gathering does have discussion, the discussion is provoked by questions asked by TPC members and answered by our guests. Our first Coaster Club was held on October 28, 2016 and was a great success. TPC looks forward to new panels, new questions and new answers in the semesters ahead.
Our second Coaster Club Gathering was March 24, 2017. The panel: Dr. Mike Thomashow and TPC PI Dr. Gregg Howe, both members of the Plant Resilience Institute (PRI).
The first TPC Coaster Club, 10/28/2016. The Panel: Two guest PIs, Dr. Ashley Shade (Microbiology and Molecular Genetics) and Dr. David Lowry (Plant Biology), and TPC PIs, Dr. Brad Day and Dr. Sheng Yang He, all members of the new Plant Resilience Institute (PRI).
