Science Group

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.

Science Group meetings are held in the Brunton Room of the Town Hall starting at 14:00 on the 4th Wednesday of each month. The full schedule is listed below.

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:

25 March 2020, - The Science of Pain , Alan Frawley
22 April 2020, - Astronomy, Pof Don Kurtz
27 May 2020, - Gravity, Peter Atkinson
24 June 2020, - Artificial Intelligence, George Carter
22 July 2020, -"Family Fortunes -The Genetics of Cancer" Andy Wilson, Yorkshire Cancer Research"
No meeting in August
23 September 2020, - TBA
28 October 2020, - TBA
25 November 2020, - Joyce Clarke (topic TBA)
No meeting in December

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.
