When he was just 17, one year older than Isabella Coombs, David Urquhart was working as an amateur engineer with aviation trailblazer Preston Watson.

Just weeks after unveiling the outcome of a £2M fundraising campaign, in the form of a new exhibition and science learning suite, Dundee Science Centre has secured £1.45M to transform the visitor attraction into an even more accessible community hub.
The Inspiring Science Fund is co-funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and Wellcome. The scheme supports science centres to re-think what they do, and what they offer to the public. Dundee Science Centre is currently fundraising for an additional £340K to reach its ambitious targets.
The news comes hot on the heels of the re-opening of the top floor following an ambitious redevelopment which doubled the upper floor space through a mezzanine extension, now housing the Medical Marvels exhibition and much improved facilities for the Science Learning Institute.
