All the news from the groups and a date for your diary…….
dare I mention it…..

All the details are in August’s Newsletter.   Read it here.  

Also, members may find this of interest.  Do you have broken or unwanted devices and don’t know what to do with them? Why not recycle them with Gadget Rehab? Full details below.

Our speaker this month will be Gareth Edwards who gave a very well-received talk to our Science & Technology Group last year. That talk was on the History of Photography. His new one is titled “Some confusions of Science and Art” which he explains as :-

“ Today, science and art are often seen to be separate, even opposite, but in the past both were considered part of our general curiosity.  My talk will explore the overlap between science and art through some examples of the importance of imagination in major scientific breakthroughs. We will also see how technology has given artists the tools to express themselves more effectively throughout history.  Also, if you thought that the primary colours were red, blue and yellow, you will have to think again!”
