The Science group dates back to the foundation of Waterlooville U3A. For several years meetings had taken place in members’ homes, moving to meet in Cowplain Business Centre in 2016 in response growing membership but in 2017 a larger meeting room was needed as our membership passed 25 and we now meet at the Sacred Heart.

Most meetings take place on the second Tuesday of each month with group members taking turns to talk on a scientific or engineering topic of which they either already had background knowledge, or on a subject they have researched specially for the talk. However, we occasionally invite an outside specialist speaker and sometimes arrange visits to local sites of scientific interest.

Any U3A member interested in the activities of the Science Group should contact the Group Coordinator (via Group Liaison - see above) and, where practicable, the member will be invited to attend up to two meetings on a free “taster” basis, after which he/she should confirm interest in joining the group and a periodic, non-returnable, group subscription of £5, will be expected to cover the future cost of hiring meeting rooms.
