This is a group focussing on Science as it affects all our lives. The aim is to encourage the discussion of all matters scientific through the well established U3A medium of talks by members for members. Meetings are held on the third Friday of each month from 10:00am to 12:00 at the Richard Herrod Centre, or sometime we have a visit out to a place of scientific interest.
