Dundee Science Centre


Dundee Science Centre

Dundee Science Centre is a charity and lifelong learning resource for the community.

The Centre’s exhibitions provide an inspiring, hands-on learning experience for everyone. Their outreach work and festivals help them extend these experiences to others throughout Scotland and beyond.


What we’ve done…

The Centre approached Grainger PR in 2010, wishing to raise its profile locally and to highlight that its role extends way beyond that of a visitor attraction.

Eight years on, I continue to work with Dundee Science Centre to highlight and showcase all aspects of the business, from family shows, school visits and higher education collaborations to major exhibitions and corporate events. I also handle the media campaigns for both Dundee Science Festival and Fife Science Festival and, through the media, have played a key role in the significant growth and popularity of both.
