Our group started in January 2010, and we meet to listen to talks given by our members on a very wide range of topics concerned with science and technology. These usually lead to some interesting discussions afterwards, and we have all learnt a lot since we started. Just look at the programme below to see the extent of our interests. If you would like to try us out we welcome new faces!
