Welcome to the Knutsford SciBar Website

This blog shows all our events, both future and past.

Our next meeting is on Monday 2nd Sept 2019 at our usual venue. Unfortunately, because some Alpine cows decided to supplement their diet by eating a number of sensors being used to collect data as part of a field experiment, Dr Arthur Broadbent, who was going to talk to us then, is having to return to Austria in early September to replace the sensors (and possibly shoot a few cows). However, despite the very short notice, we have been very fortunate to get a replacement: John Anderson (now retired, but who previously worked at the National Centre of Tribology at Birchwood) will give a talk entitled “Tribology – friction, lubrication and wear – a brief overview including some application examples”. If I get any more details I will post them here.

Please note that the start time will be 19.30 until announced otherwise. The entrance fee is £2 (free to students and under 21s).

We now have speakers booked up to and including March 2020. We have had a lot of ideas from the membership, many of which we are following up, but more are always welcome, so keep them coming.

Hopefully Dr Broadbent will be able to come and give his talk on invasive plant species (or maybe a new one on the changing dietary habits of Alpine cows) next year.

Enjoy the rest of the summer, assuming the weather will let you!
