At the moment the meetings are usually centred round videos of general scientific interest. Over the past two years or so we have looked at films on Astronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Geology, Mathematics, Medicine and Physics and also biographies about people considered as Great Scientists e.g. Newton, Einstein and Darwin. These are usually followed by a general discussion during the refreshment break.

We meet on the first Tuesday of the month 2 pm to 4 pm at Burnley Central Library.

Next Meeting: Tuesday 3rd March, Another in our  great scientists selection. This month a video about the life and work of Nikola Tesla. Contact Brian Pomfret.
