Science & Technology Group
For subjects of current and historical interest.
The Science and Technology Group meets monthly to learn about and discuss topics of current and historical interest. The format for the meetings is not fixed but will include presentations, discussions and possibly visits. No prior knowledge of particular subjects will be assumed and everyone will have a chance to ask questions or contribute a point of view.
Our meetings are normally at 2pm on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 81 Hyndland Road. (This is also known as Russell House and is the main door flat next to Hyndland Parish Church.) All GWE U3A members are welcome but it's helpful if you use the pigeon link to notify the co-ordinator in advance if you expect to attend. You can also use the link to ask for more information or to request that your name be put on the mailing list for the Group.
After the summer break, we will have a programme of speakers on a diverse range of subjects including: Farming and climate change; The Internet (what is it, who controls it?); Geological history of the Glasgow area; Biodiversity; Vaccines - history and current status; maths for Christmas; Lister, Glasgow and Antisepsis; and Microelectronics. Our first meeting after the summer will be on 18th September.
New members are always welcome, even if there is only one talk that interests you. We also welcome your suggestions for subjects that you would like to discuss.
