Members often show us items they have made, or worked with, or want to know more about.
At one past meeting we cooked beefburgers using solar power, (here we learned that if the sun's rays are focused too well, you can burn the centre of a burger and have the outer edges raw!).
On another occasion we saw an instrument made by one of our members that measured the amount of silt deposited on the sea bed.
At this June meeting we plan to discuss methods of heating our homes and next month we may visit the home of one of our members where heating is being updated.
We may also discuss recent discoveries that are in the news.
