2nd Friday 10:00 to 12:00
We are a lovely mix of people, from different backgrounds, who have been meeting monthly for many years. We have enquiring minds and are able to think "outside-the-box". Some members have spent years working in laboratories, others just have a broad interest in how things work. There are no brain surgeons or rocket scientists among us-thus far, anyway!
The format of each meeting is usually that one member presents a presentation of about an hour on whatever subject they have chosen to research. This is followed by coffee and amiable, science-focussed chat. The subject range is very wide. Examples from last year are: Brewing, Combustion Engines, Darwin's The Origin of Species, Paper Manufacture, Radioactivity,Science and Philosophy and Storage of electric power. We do have list of many subjects, though many members are keen to research their own. So, we learn all the time, even if we're not great at remembering it all-and it's always fun!
