We are a group of about twelve, from Wadhurst and the U3A’s of Hawkhurst and Paddock Wood. We aim to make science and technology accessible to everyone, with or without a background in science, while keeping those who do have such a background interested and informed of recent developments.

Below is our programme for the coming months:

DATETOPICPRESENTER
04/09/19Physics and maths in the history of musicPhilip Cheung
02/10/19Discussions over lunch (venue tbc)
06/11/19How the internet worksPhilip Cheung
04/12/19Nuclear wastes in the ArcticNeil Lynn

This August I gave the talk on physics, mathematics and music at the annual meeting of the U3A’s Science Network at Aston University. I hope it is worth repeating, even though I gave a version of it in Wadhurst three years ago. The new version includes an amusing video on the major and minor keys, as well as improved explanations all round.

The talk in November should appeal to many as the internet seems to have taken over our lives.

In December Neil Lynn from Paddock Wood U3A recounts an episode when he was requested to send Prince Philip documents explaining how the Soviets had disposed of nuclear wastes in the Arctic.

There is no need to join the group formally. Turn up when a topic appeals.

If you are interested in any of the above topics, just come along.
