The Joy of Science

The group meets Second Friday from 10.00 to 12.00 Science and Technology for scientists and non-scientists

Topics chosen by members are discussed. These have included subjects as diverse as gravitational waves and lenses & prisms. The group comprises people with no scientific background as well as physicists, chemists, biologists and engineers, so whatever questions are asked, somebody knows the answer.
