Science In the News

Leader: Geo Meadows
Location: Broome Village Hall

General
----------
Open to anyone interested in learning about and discussing current scientific topics. It does not require any technical background and won't be surrounded by jargon or maths. Format is typically a set of videos followed by discussion. The objective is to educate, entertain and involve. Members are more than welcome to make presentations if they feel comfortable doing this. Members of other U3As may also join us, by prior arrangement.

Please phone me on 01562 700727 (or send an email - see panel on right) if you wish to discuss any aspect of the group's activities.
