We learn about technologies that directly affect our lives or are simply interesting to find out about.
The Technology group draws on the knowledge and experience of its own group members and also engages guest speakers to deliver interesting talks on a wide range of technical subjects, usually with the aid of presentation slides. We have encompassed the very small (sub atomic) to the very large (astronomical) and historical aspects of technology development through to expectations for the future.
The Technology Group meets on the third Thursday of the month in the upstairs hall at the Woosehill Community Centre. We gather from 9:45 and talks begin at 10.00, typically lasting for an hour to an hour and a half.
Our meetings were conducted on Zoom during the worst of the COVID-19 pandemic. They resumed at the Woosehill hall in September 2021 with some precautions to reduce the risk of infection:
• If anybody feels unwell they should remain at home and contact their doctor as necessary.
• The use of face masks inside the building is voluntary but recommended upon entry to the building and whilst setting up.
• The usual tea, coffee and biscuits are NOT being provided. Group members may bring their own refreshments, for their own use only.
These precautions will be eased as the pandemic subsides further.
