Science Group via Zoom
Science Group meetings are normally held in the Brunton Room of the Town Hall starting at 14:00 on the 4th Wednesday of each month, but with Covid we have started Zoom meetings.
I have created a list of those who have indicated that they are interested in attending via Zoom. I am not sending out messages to anyone not on this list. Let me know if you want to be added.
This group is for anyone with an interest in science - whether or not they have a scientific background. Don’t worry if you haven’t had a scientific education - or if it was a long time ago - the only requirement is an interest in learning about science and technology issues which affect us all in our daily lives.
The aim is to discuss topics in a way that the “experts” can help the “non-experts” to understand the issues. Many of the most interesting and searching questions come from the non-scientists.
One of the group usually leads the discussion (or sometimes we use a suitable DVD) for 40 to 50 minutes then we have a question and (hopefully !) answers session. The topics for the next few months are listed below. We hope to add more shortly:
28 July 2020, -"Family Fortunes -The Genetics of Cancer" Andy Wilson, Yorkshire Cancer Research"
25th August 2020, "The Songs of the Stars: the real music of the spheres'. Prof Don Kurtz
If you have any other topics you would like to discuss then please contact the group leader, Peter Atkinson, and we will try to include them in future meetings.
