HISTORY OF SCIENCE
We are delighted to announce that Alison Giles, who is a familiar figure to our French Conversation Group, will be leading a new U3A Group, 'The History of Science'. She is in charge of education at Burwell Museum and also at the Whipple History of Science Museum in Cambridge.
No doubt you will wish to join her in her Zoom meetings, to be held at 11.30 am on the second Wednesday of the month in this exciting new opportunity.
She will select a different instrument each month to give its history and development, eg Darwin's microscope, sunshine recording or the earthquake model.
Her talks will be followed by questions and answers. Contact Alison for a link to join future meetings.
On Wednesday 12 May we will look at sunshine recorders, climate science and portable instruments – email Alison on email@example.com if you would like to receive the Zoom link and you’re not already on the list.
