Bringing people together

Science & Technology

ASH U3A Science and Technology Group

Our long established S&T Group here in Ash was in part ‘on hold’ during the pandemic, but we still managed to complete our timetable via ZOOM.

Then, with considerable easing of the lockdown strictures we reverted to open Meetings, at a new venue. Our Meetings are monthly and a Calling Notice is circulated to our Members one week prior to advise the topic. We don’t publish an annual programme, it would not be practical.

Our 20/21 itinerary included presentations on ; ‘a ‘flatter’ London, aspects of zoology, Endo Tubes, railway track realignment (HK), drone surveillance, Gatwick Aviation Museum and the British airship initiative. Given the lockdown circumstances, most of the work was devised and presented ‘in house’ by our S&T Group members.

Winter Dates 2022;         Jan 7th;  Feb 4th;  Mar 4th;  Apr 1st.

Spring Dates 2022;          May 6th;  Jun 3rd;  July 1st;

Day:                    First Friday of the month (except where shown).

Time;                  From 10:00 to 11:30 am.

Venue;                Pandemic permitting, at St Peters Church Hall,

                          Opposite St Peters Church, Ash Church Rd, Ash, Aldershot GU12  6LU            

                          On a bus route, close to Ash Station, car parking on site.

Next Meeting: 7th Jan 2022. This will be via Zoom due to uncertainty over post-Christmas COVID restrictions

We are merely ‘People’, just like you, some with no technical background at all, but perhaps a few ex-engineers, scientists, or technicians. Our Meetings are ‘general purpose’, aiming to be interesting and entertaining. We are NOT trying to recreate our working lives.

Not yet an S&T Group member?  Please telephone or e.Mail as below to receive our Calling Notice which will contain details of the upcoming subject and presenter. All welcome, minimum charge.
