Group report

This is an article published in the Spring 2017 edition of the Hayling Island U3A newsletter...

The range of talks that we have enjoyed in the Science and Technology group really does illustrate the huge scope of the subject. Recent topics have included the discovery of the new wonder material, Graphene, the development of model trains, flight simulators, the control of containers around the world, the drains of Hayling and earth observations from satellites. Our next talks will include the complexities of Excel, the source of Hayling’s water and the design of lifeboats. The majority of the talks are given by our own members who bring a lifetime’s experience and expertise to their subjects. We meet in the St Patrick’s Church Hall on the 4th Wednesday of each month at 2.30 pm and welcome visitors as well as regular members of the group. All the talks are presented in such a way as to appeal to the lay person as well as to the technocrats so techies and luddites are equally welcome.
