The Science Group aims to develop activities and interest in science and technology in the Institution. Not all of its members are professional scientists; some have only a limited background in scientific and technological matters. But we all feel that there is a need to encourage a greater understanding amongst non-scientists of what scientists do and of scientific method. We are also concerned that so much popular discussion of subjects such as global warming and genetic engineering is based on a misunderstanding or lack of knowledge.
Experts talk about current developments in science, technology, medicine and the social sciences. Questions and discussion are encouraged. The meetings are open to anyone with a general interest in the topics, whether or not members of HLSI. Thursdays from 8 to 9.30 pm. There is no charge for admittance.
