Group Description

Technology pervades every aspect of modern life, so if you are interested in how things work and improve our everyday life then this is the group for you.

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.  Talks begin at 10.00, typically lasting for an hour to an hour and a half, with refreshments available from 09.30. While the COVID-19 restrictions prevent meetings from taking place in person, virtual meetings are being held on Zoom, same days, starting at 10:00.’
