The Society exists to promote an interest in and an understanding of science in all its disciplines. Topics range widely, drawn from all aspects of science and technology. Experts are invited to speak about the current state and advances in their field. The talks are usually illustrated, and followed by a question time.
No special knowledge beyond an interest in science is needed for a worthwhile evening, although some lectures are more technical in nature than others.
Members are encouraged to put forward suggestions for the future programme.
Lectures take place at Mycenae House on the third Friday of the month from September to May at 7.45 p.m. During the summer outings are often arranged to a place of scientific or technological interest.
