Science and Technology meetings currently take the form of an hour long presentation on a suitable scientific or technological topic, followed by a 30 minute period of comments, questions and discussion. The presenter has been chosen as being someone knowledgeable on the subject, who has normally given the presentation elsewhere before and therefore comes "recommended".

The programme has a broad variation of topic, seriousness and intellectual depth which is intended to ensure the interest of our members. There is always a discussion after the presentation, so that we can learn more, or add to the understanding.

Liphook u3a members assist with the planning and running of the meetings. For the future it is hoped that the emphasis on "speakers and presentations" can be varied so as to give local members the opportunity to give short presentations themselves and to lead discussions on their chosen subjects.

At present the Group is led by Malcolm Muggeridge, with a Steering Group of members guiding the direction of the Group and volunteers are required to join those currently involved. Please send a message using the Message icon, with your suggestions for improving the Group meetings, visits etc as well as ways in which we can get members more involved in what is being discussed, so as to be more of a learning experience.

Temporary remote meetings take place using Zoom at 2:00pm - Zoom Room opens 1:30pm Please contact the Liphook representative to be added to the mailing list for the Zoom link for the meetings and access code.
