The group operates by means of exposition, discussion and joint enquiry. Some sessions are led by members who have a background in science who give a presentation on a chosen subject. Some examples are Evolution, The Periodic Table, Medical Imaging and Genetic Diseases. In Science in the News sessions, usually held once or twice a term, members of the group speak for a few minutes on some aspect of science or technology published in the popular media or in scientific journals which have caught their attention. Each presentation is discussed by the group.
Meetings are held from 2pm to 4pm on the last Friday of the month in Training Room, St Andrew's Church (first floor), Mount Park Road (opposite Haven Green).
Everyone with an interest in science or technology is welcome.You don't have to a be scientist to join the group, just have a curiosity about the world around us. There is room for a few more members.
The next meeting will be on Nov 29, 2019, 2.0pm in St Andrew's, Mount Park Road. The session will be a resumption of the successful Questions and Answers meeting of last term. The questions to be addressed are How did life originate? (answered by John Stirling and Mike Black) and What are negative and positive charges? (Bill Maskell).
