Leicester

Science and Technology

Convener: Richard Thompson

Topics for discussion are chosen by group members to reflect the challenges of current developments in science and technology.

The format of meetings varies. Sometimes one member gives a talk; sometimes several of us make shorter contributions. We do not restrict ourselves to scientific theory but also discuss the social and economic implications of technology.

The group welcomes all U3A members who are interested in exploring and discussing scientific developments and their implications.

We now meet online using Zoom, still on the last Thursday of each month, but now starting at 2 pm. Members will receive details by email a week or so before each meeting. There will be no more face to face meetings until further notice. We fear that will not be for quite a long time.
