Our guest speakers, professionals, talk and discuss science or technological subjects which have affected our daily lives and the wider society in small or profound ways. You do not need to have any science knowledge, just an interest and enjoyment of the subject. This is an open group so you can come for a single talk, which is of interest to you, or better still come along for the whole term.
