No academic qualifications are required.


Update 1st June 2018

Our next U3A Science Group meeting will be at the Royal Oak, Duke Street, (up the hill, just past the Talbot buildings – on the corner). The time of meeting here will be at 3:00 pm on 28th June.

Contact Linden for more details.



Members often show us items they have made, or worked with, or want to know more about.

At one past meeting we cooked beefburgers using solar power, (here we learned that if the sun's rays are focused too well, you can burn the centre of a burger and have the outer edges raw!).

On another occasion we saw an instrument made by one of our members that measured the amount of silt deposited on the sea bed.

We may also discuss recent discoveries that are in the news.
