If diversity be the spice of life then we have very spicy meetings in the Science and Technology Group. This last term has witnessed talks about the "Complexities of Excel", "The source of Hayling's water", "Lifeboat design" and "Electricity - will the lights go out?" Already planned on dates to be advised we have "System Analysis", "MS-Access" and "Container control Systems".
Most of our talks are given by U3A members who have joined the S&T group. But given that our overall membership is now above 480 there must be many in our U3A who have had a lifetime involvement in a technology related business and have a story to tell. Sharing your expertise is a very rewarding experience and I look forward to receiving some volunteers to add to next year's programmes. An additional reward is the presentation of a bottle of wine!
Our meetings are held on the 4th Wednesday of each month in St Patrick's Church Hall at 2.30 pm and are open to all members of the U3A for a small fee towards the cost of the hall hire.
