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.
Our activities include debates, book discussions and visits to scientific establishments.
Science Group events are open to everyone with an interest in science and technology.
Let's Chat about Science is a series of informal discussions about current issues. They take place on Thursdays (except 11 November) at 8 pm and finish at 9.30.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
