Join the group via Beacon Members Portal

Science affects all aspects of our life as we are being constantly reminded during this period of coronavirus lockdown. Everybody has questions about science and technology and the way it is affecting their lives.

Ask a Scientist
This is a set of simple question and answer pages open to all who wish to use them. Initially questions and answers will be given as comments to the main Ask a Scientist page but may be archived as groups of comments or Specific named pages as they grow.

There will also be Zoom meetings on a regular basis to allow for face to face discussion and presentations the current planned date is 10:00 to 12:00 on the fourth Tuesday morning in the month.
