Ashtead

Science

The Ashtead U3A Science Group meets on a monthly basis to discuss current topics and issues in science, engineering and technology. The meetings take place on the third Friday in the month, from 10am to 12 noon, and the venue is one or other of the members’ houses. Sometimes the discussion is led by one of the members and on other occasions the meeting revolves round a general discussion. The group exists to bring together those who have an interest in current topics in science and technology and who wish to develop that interest. Currently, the members of the group bring a wide range of knowledge and experience to the topics under discussion and it is not unusual for counter arguments to be made to the generally accepted position. Over the past few months there have been discussions on the carbon footprint of food, bird migration, Einstein’s General Theory of Relativity (2015 was the hundredth anniversary of this theory), El Niño, and Fibre Reinforcement. The group periodically attends the U3A Surrey Network meetings when the topic is of scientific interest.
