The Science and Technology Group is open to any member of the Hayling Island U3A. Regular members pay a subscription of £5.00 which tends to last for around 12 months, whilst occasional members pay a fee of £2 per visit.
We usually meet at St Patrick's church hall on Manor Road on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 2.30 pm with the exception of August and December.
Our purpose is to promote an interest into the very broad field of Science and Technology. At each meeting a speaker, generally drawn from within the ranks of HIU3A, gives a talk on a subject on which they have some expertise. Subjects have ranged from cardiology to space travel to meteorology to explosives! All the talks are of general interest even to those who claim to have no scientific knowledge, so all are welcome.
Plans are afoot to liaise with other U3A groups in the area to "swop" speakers. In addition, we arrange visits to places of interest.
