The Galilean Society aims to promote science to the general public. We do this by hosting free science talks, held every month, covering all aspects of science. If you have an interest in science, come and join us in our quest to learn just a little bit more …
All lectures are at the level of ‘popular science’ talks and last about an hour, followed by a brief Question Time where you can put your questions to the speaker.
Talks are free and all members of the public are welcome to attend.
