Blast-Off: Schoolboy’s Creation Selected for New Exhibition

An Angus schoolboy has scooped a starring role in a brand new animation exhibition after taking part in a home learning programme.

Ollie Hay (11), from Tannadice, near Forfar created a time-lapse animation – https://www.graingerpr.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/05/Ollie-Hay-Rocket-Vid-2.avi – in response to Dundee Science Centre’s ‘Space Week’ activities.  Not only did Ollie win a Space science kit bundle for his impressive submission, but was offered the chance to feature in ‘Animation Station’, part of the ‘CONNECT’ development due to be unveiled early 2021.

The Dundee Science Centre activities had been brought to Ollie’s attention by Tannadice Primary School as part of its drive to keep pupils engaged in science learning during lockdown. Grasping the challenge, Ollie turned the family dining room into a workshop / film studio where he created a papier-mâché spaceship, Lego rocket and impressive ‘take-off’ in front of a Lego crowd. Taking photos every few minutes as the Lego spacemen climbed into the rocket and the crowd jostled in anticipation, Ollie created a time-lapse video of around 300 photos, resulting in a stunning animation.

From Dental Chair to Smartphone: Artificial Intelligence Supports Patients During Bracing Times

Dundee-based specialist orthodontic practice Beam Orthodontics has unveiled a revolutionary tool to support patients during lockdown and beyond.

Beam has become one of the first practices in Scotland to adopt Dental Monitoring (DM) which allows patients to monitor their progress by scanning their teeth with an App on their smartphone. Images are then sent on to their clinician, providing more engagement, feedback and reassurance.

Following a pilot last year, Beam is now inviting all adult patients (18+) to download the DM App. Almost 200 patients have transferred over since the lockdown was announced. Beam is also offering a free DM consultation to prospective new patients.
