    •  an overview of some of the phenomenological requirements and successes of string theory plus brief summary of  some important concepts. Probably best read after understanding the notes above.
    • Extra dimensions A powerpoint presentation about curvature and extra dimensions.
    • Protect and Survive  some (admittedly rather cynical) advice on speaking in public
    • LTSN the learning and teaching support network. A teaching and learning site that may improve given time.
