Theory and discovery…
The BNSS hosts a rich variety of science lectures throughout the year. Speakers often include professionals from universities or research institutes who have an intimate understanding of the field in which they work. We have a concentration of scientific lectures during British Science Week, held annually in March.
BNSS members also provide us with regular talks, with topics such as electrons, anti-matter, genetics and astronomy. We are lucky to have retired professionals amongst our members who are often willing to give a talk on an area of specific interest, and some talks are quite light-hearted.
