Buxton & District

Science

This group is for anyone with an interest in science whether or not they have a scientific background.    Don’t worry if you haven’t had a scientific education or it was a long time ago.  The only requirement is an interest in learning about science and technology issues which affect all of us.  The aim is to discuss topics in a way that the experts can help the non-experts to understand the issues. Many of the most interesting and searching questions come from the non-scientists
