Science and Society
Wed 7 Sep @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every month that begins at 2:00 pm on day First of the month, repeating indefinitely
New Members very welcome and open to all. We, of course, need presenters who will give talks to our members. But if you just wish to listen to broaden your knowledge, don’t worry. You’re just as important to the Group.
The first 3 talks are:
- September 7th: A Brief History of Numbers, by Rick Shepperson
- October 5th: Isaac Newton – his life and science, by Alan Broadway
- November 2nd: Star Gazers – using telescopes to search the cosmos with special emphasis on the Hubble and James Webb telescopes, by Liz Mann
This is a group for anyone interested in Science and Technology.
You don’t have to be an expert.
If you’re interested in Science, come along, learn more, make friends and have an entertaining afternoon.
Group members give illustrated presentations on any scientific, mathematical, medical, veterinary, technical or engineering subject thought to be of interest. Related topics e.g. Biographies are welcome.
Talks last about 50 minutes.
You don’t have to be an expert to make a presentation. If a topic takes your fancy, and you are prepared to do some desk research, you will produce something we can all enjoy.
In the past, we’ve had talks on:
- Chemical Bonds
- Diesel Emissions
- Robert Fitzroy
- Bury St Edmunds
- …and much, much more…
There is a contribution of £10 per term to cover the cost of room hire.
If you wish to come for only one talk, the contribution is £5.
Guest visitors are welcome at £5 per person per talk.
Please contact Graeme, Group Leader for more details.
