This group is for the geek in us all. We explore a somewhat random range of topics from a science/tech/geeky perspective. Each week is different and each term has a different theme. As with all our Technohackers groups, we intend it to be a fun clever environment where disaster has plenty of opportunity. Most sessions involve a talk followed by an experiment, a challenge or a demonstration. No one knows how stuff will go – we try things out and see what happens. In fact everything we do is an experiment. If you are not a member at the moment Sign Up here. If you are a member and are going to come to this group, could you put your name on this list here.

This term we are going to mess with Chemistry. It will be a chance to explode, melt and burn as we look at Carbon, Oxygen and Hydrogen (mainly, never trust our plans, we might get distracted and do other things as well, who knows?).

Last Year: In term 1 we also looked at chemistry, mainly in connection to food (but not always). A lot of sugar was caramelized and crystallized. Then in term 2 we looked at ART with our science brains switched on. In term 3, we got into FORENSICS and it was all fingerprints, footprints, blood splatters, fire, exploding airbags and rotting bodies. In term 4 we finished the year with a geeky look at CIRCUS performance with the help of Circus Kumarani. In years prior to this we have looked at the brain, projectiles and rockets and construction among other topics.
