Dundee Science Centre


Dundee Science Centre

Dundee Science Centre is much more than a visitor attraction, inspiring and engaging communities in all-things science, from families, day-trippers and school pupils through to academia and business.

Science is all around us and Dundee Science Centre brings it to life, shows its relevance and makes it fun and accessible.

I’ve had the privilege of telling their amazing stories for 10 years.  Whether it’s dinosaurs, life on Mars, Guide dogs or cutting-edge technologies, it’s never dull!


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.

Ten 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, Dundee Science Festival and corporate events.

What they’ve said…

Dr Isabel Bruce OBE, Chief Executive Officer said, “Claire really is part of the Dundee Science Centre team – she takes the time to understand what we really need as an organisation and team and will then recommend and implement the appropriate methods to achieve the best results.  In particular, she appreciates the concept of widening access and carefully supports our organisation’s culture and ethos by producing inclusive and diverse content.   It’s always particularly challenging as a charitable organisation with limited budgets to achieve the targets we set in terms of raising our profile and increasing footfall, however Claire continues to support us and help us achieve this on both a local and national front.  Working across all levels of our organisation, supporting both junior and senior members of the team, Claire is also a great sounding board in terms of crisis management, tailoring our responses to meet the desired outcomes.”
