Science and Technology

The answer to the picture puzzle is the Control Tower at TAG Farnborough Airport seen from the base. Follow the link on the right to see further images of our visit.

Most of us grew up in a world where the transistor and the laser were recent inventions. Such technologies are now incorporated in almost every gadget and piece of equipment that we use and we accept them without a second thought. The group is for anyone with a technical curiosity who would like to understand more about our increasingly technological world.

The group exists simply to undertake visits to places that would be of interest.

We have recently been on visits to High Salvington Windmill and the Rural Life Centre in Farnham. We will shortly be visiting Farnborough Airport.

Dave Ratcliffe has now taken on the task of Group Leader, although visits are often organised as joint ventures with Architecture and/or History. To have your details added to the list of members, please click on Science and Technology Group Leader

Dates for your Diary
Fri Aug 17th Visit to Alexander-Dennis in Guildford

Many of you will remember that I organised a visit to Alexander-Dennis (Bus chassis factory) last year after the talk given at the general meeting. The visit was cancelled on the day before due to staff illness. After some polite persistence, I have now received an offer to visit the factory on the 17th August.

I have no details at this stage except that there will be a small party from another group sharing the visit with us. There is no charge for the visit and I understand that refreshments will be made available to us at the start of the visit. If it is like the planned visit from last year, we will need to arrive in Guildford for about 12:30 to 1pm. Transport will be by car share.

As usual, to book a place, contact the Science and Technology Group Leader quoting the usual information (Full name(s), contact phone number, mobile number for use on the day, email address, whether you will be driving and the number of places available in your car if you are willing to offer lifts). This is particularly important for new members of the U3A . Needless to say, you must be a member of Midhurst U3A (or a neighbouring U3A) to take part.
