Science Discussion Group

3rd Wednesday each month

1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
South Library Board Room
               66 Colombo Street

A very wide range of topics is discussed and members often bring articles and videos that interest them to the meeting.  Videos are viewed and/or short presentations are made by members and then discussed. Our focus can shift from arcane theoretical matters to simple, everyday phenomona that has just caught our interest. Absolutely no scientific knowledge is needed or necessary for this group. You just need an inquiring mind........and sometimes a sense of humour!

Controversial Current Affairs

3rd Monday each month

2:00pm - 4:00pm
South Library
              66 Colombo Street

This group covers a wide range of topics both local and international, basically anything and everything making the news or of interest.

The topics we discuss are chosen by members of the group and we encourage everyone to suggest their own interests and ideas.  Our discussions can be briefly topical or ongoing, world changing or some light relief, but not boring!

Chairing the meetings is shared between those members who are happy to do this.  If you would rather listen than talk, that’s okay as well.  There are others more than willing to do the talking!

The number of enrolled members is near the maximum but we have never yet had a meeting where everybody turns up so, if you are interested - come along.

Convenor:   Mary Long - Ph 337 9163  |  027 952 1698
