We will seek to explore some of the oldest questions in the history of mankind:
The aims of this Group are to stimulate interest in the wonders of our world through the scientific achievements of a wide range of different branches of Science & Technology. We will give our members/students a chance to discuss and/or understand some of the problems that scientists and engineers are trying to solve. There will be some simple but FUN experiments, prompted debates and we hope to enhance this by having invited guests at some meetings and by visiting some sites of scientific or technological interest on others.
We hope to look at Telecommunications, Energy, Chemicals, Biology, Man-made Fabrics and Materials, Plants and the wonders of photosynthesis, Physics, Astronomy, Psychology, Sociology, Geology, Fibre-Optic Technology, Quantum Mechanics and even Philosophy (to name but a few). If you can think of a branch of Science and/or Technology not listed above then we will cover it.
First meeting: 4pm, Wednesday 10th July in the Centenary Lounge. Bring a diary!
