Science & Technology Events …

26 October, 2017

John Beer has been very active setting up Science & Technology group visits and meetings for the next few months.


* November 2nd – ‘History of Fireworks’  Colin Tufnell (Aston Clinton U3A Sci and Tech group). He will talk to us about fireworks – including a demonstration of fusing as part of the talk. That should go with a bang!
* December 7th – a member of Tring U3A Sci and Tech group will explain to us the development of the Bar code.
* January 4th – no meeting.
* February 1st – ‘Why Things Move’. Paul Brown of ATG will explain!  This will be interesting, quirky and enjoyable.
  * March 7th (yes, a Wednesday!) – a morning trip to the Waterside Theatre, Aylesbury for a behind the scenes look at the equipment and arrangement for a stage production.
  * April ?? – tentative arrangements to join with other groups for a trip to a transport Museum in London. Details will follow.

Other events/trips are being investigated, details will follow.

If you are interested in any of the trips or learning more about the S&T meetings please contact John Beer by e-Mail ( or at a U3A meeting.
