Dundee Science Centre Looks to Local Communities to Shape Future

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.

Medical Myths & Mysteries

From using warty toads and shaved chickens to cure the Bubonic Plague to putting dried smallpox scabs up noses to create immunity, a fascinating family show underway in Dundee is exploring some of the weirdest medical myths and mysteries over the ages.

Complementing Dundee Science Centre’s new Medical Marvels exhibition, which opened exactly one month ago, the ‘Medical Myths and Mysteries’ show is wowing audiences with unsavoury (but true) tales of how doctors used to deal with the sick, compared to kinder, modern day methods.
