Horndean & District

Science and Technology

Convenor Mike Gledhill

We are a lively and friendly group who usually meet on the first Wednesday afternoon of each month, 2 - 4pm. This varies if we visit a site of Scientific or Technological interest.

Meetings vary between presentations, workshops and visits, with the occasional fun social event.

Members give presentations/lead ‘workshops’ if they have a particular expertise, but some prefer to listen and learn. Most of the Science and Technology disciplines are represented in the Group.

You don’t have to be a Scientist to join us, just possess a lively and enquiring mind.

Previous topics have ranged from Antarctica, through a Bat walk, Gunpowder and various Mathematical topics to Systems Engineering and local Environment issues.

Visits have included the Atomic Weapons Museum, a Distillery and a Roman Glass Blowing foundry as well as visits to various manufacturers in the area. Many of us also remember a glorious day spent surveying the foreshore at Studland.
