Science 2

At our end of year meeting we were royally entertained by Christine Vincent and Alan Ratcliffe who, with a modern ‘magic lantern’, took us through ten science based events in recent history. These included the invention of Christmas crackers by a certain Tom Smith whose company is still in business.

Bob McEwen then came along together with some insect based food items and, before a tasting session, he presented some facts to illustrate the advantages of farming insects for food. He explained that they are high in protein and use relatively low amounts of energy and space to farm.

Finally an end of year ‘Science of Christmas’ team quiz and a big thank you to the group for their continued enthusiasm.

Next Meeting: Friday January 17th 10.00 am to 12 noonwith
presentations by John Tedstone and David Rose.
