Leader and Contact: Professor Rod Latham.
The principal purpose of the group is to provide a forum for updating U3A members of all professional backgrounds as to what are the modern developments in science and technology. To this end, a key aim of the group is to concentrate on basic concepts, rather than mathematical formalism, and so is of potential interest to anyone who has an enthusiasm for learning about “what makes the world go round”.
The group has grown from an initial nucleus of ten or so members to its present complement of around forty enthusiasts drawn from both the arts and the sciences.
Its meetings consist of a formal presentation (talk or film) for the first hour, followed by coffee and a general discussion of whatever topic is of current interest. By general agreement, this second half of each meeting is particularly appreciated since it adds a social dimension to the Group.
