Local Society: Greenwich

'The Society exists to promote an interest in and an understanding of science in all its disciplines. Topics range widely, drawn from all aspects of science and technology.  We invite experts to speak about the current state and advances in their field.  The talks are usually illustrated, and followed by a question time. No special knowledge beyond an interest in science is needed for a worthwhile evening, although some lectures are more technical in nature than others ... Our meetings are open to the public and we welcome visitors.'
