The group operates by means of exposition, discussion and joint enquiry. Some sessions are led by members with 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.
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.
Conventional meetings are cancelled until further notice but we now meet by video conferencing using Zoom.
The next meeting will be at 2.00pm, Friday, Oct 29, on Science in the News. Contributions from members are most welcome. It is not too soon to collect your material!
The Zoom link will be sent out on the preceding day.
All U3A members are welcome to join the meeting. You may contact the convener through the blue bird on the top right of this page.
Visits have yet to be made to The King’s Arms and The Forester to assess their suitability for in-the-flesh meetings under the current COVID guidelines. In the meantime, the convener would be glad to have your views as to ‘flesh vs Zoom’ and the two possible venues.
