Engineering & Science Discussion Group

Mail Address

The aim of the group is to investigate and discuss in a relaxed environment, Engineering, Science & Technology topics, both natural and man-made, often with a topical relevance.

Are you interested in exploring the science and engineering that underpins our understanding of the man-made and natural world?

Would you like to join a group who are interested in discussing and understanding more of the scientific and technical world?

Topics for Discussion could be in engineering, science, biology, medicine, astronomy, physics, etc.

The range of topics and format of the meetings will be determined by members.

Initial meetings to be held at a members house at 2:00 pm on the 4th Wednesday of the month.

Engineering; Check out this link for entertainment

 Engineering is Awesome

Science; Check out this quantum physics lecture, but beware it may cause brain damage.

"If you can explain this using common sense and logic, do let me know, because there is a Nobel Prize for you.."

Forthcoming Events -

Wednesday, 22 January 2020 - Meeting on Climate Change 2.00pm - At Dennis' House

Update

Unfortunately there have been enough requests to attend this meeting and  hit the reasonable limit on space, so unless somebody who has requested to come tells me they can't make it, I will stuggle to acommadate any more requests to attend this meeting.

Kind Regards

Dennis

Our last meeting was in October, so for the start of 2020 the suggestion has been made that we can look at Climate change from an Engineering, Science and Technology perspective.

This year there is going to be loads of politically charged media coverage on the topic, so it's a good time to look at the evidence and what could be done to mitigate the risks.

Please let me know if you have something of interest or good quality references on the topic.

As there is limited space, please let me know by Monday if you intend to come.

If we have time we can look at previous topics and decide which if any need to be revisited due to the new events, or find new topics that the group are interested.
