Science and Technology

Science and Technology - Graham Topping

The group was formed to help members to understand some of the progress made in Science and Technology in recent years. It is particularly focused on those members who have very little prior knowledge of these subjects. There is no set curriculum and topics dealt with are by the choice of the members. This may require some background information being provided before the topic makes sense but theory is kept as basic as possible. We also need members who have a background in Science and Technology subjects to help pass on their skills and knowledge but there will always be a range of current topics to keep everyone interested. The group is new and so far we have dealt with Graphene , a material for which staff from Manchester University were awarded a Nobel prize in 2010. We had a presentation from staff at O2 on modern mobile phones and tariffs. We also had answered questions on how aircraft fly, how they fly upside down and why jet engines do not stop working when it rains. Ask us your question and we will answer it for you, or at least try to!
