Science Group

Expert talks on current developments in science and technology

The Science Group aims to develop activities and interest in science and technology in the Institution.  Not all of its members are professional scientists; some have only a limited background in scientific and technological matters.  But we all feel that there is a need to encourage a greater understanding amongst non-scientists of what scientists do and of scientific method.  We are also concerned that so much popular discussion of subjects such as global warming and genetic engineering is based on a misunderstanding or lack of knowledge.

Experts talk about current developments in science, technology, medicine and the social sciences. Questions and discussion are encouraged.

The meetings are open to anyone with a general interest in the topics, and take place on Thursdays from 8.00 to 9.30pm. Meetings have now returned to the Victoria Hall and are free to everyone. Please register by 1pm on the day of the event.
