People Who Help Us
Published on 5 June 2017
Visitors to Dundee Science Centre can meet and mingle with some of the people who are vital to our lives and survival this weekend (Saturday 10 June 2017).
From police officers and medics to guide pups and the RNLI, ‘People who Help us’ will hear from a number of people (and dogs!) working on our doorstep to ensure that we are safe and well.
In what is the latest ‘Meet the Expert’ event at Dundee Science Centre, the event will run from 10am until 4pm and is included as part of normal admission.
Those taking part include Scott Menmuir, Dundee Community Safety Constable from Police Scotland, who will be bringing some police gear for children to try on, as well as a real life scenes of crime (SOC) kit.
He will be joined by Robert Humphreys, Clinical Teaching Fellow from University of St Andrews, who will be demystifying the role of GPs alongside Henry Rae, also from University of St Andrews.
Meanwhile, both two and four legged representatives from Guide Dogs for the Blind will also be on hand to showcase their role in keeping blind and visually impaired people safe and well, through various demos and blind-folded walks.
Other experts will include Ayman Mustafa, Consultant Anaesthetist from Ninewells Hospital who will demonstrate some real-life kit used in anaesthesia, while answering the public’s questions on the topic.
Aisha Schofield, Exhibitions and Community Engagement Officer said, “We often take for granted the huge range of people and organisations out there who are ready to jump into action in the event of an emergency or challenge. We thought it would be fitting to give these experts a platform to explain what they do, and how they do it. Despite its serious undertones, the event promises to be fun for all the family!”
