Superhero Treat for Dundee Nursery Children

Children attending a Dundee nursery met a trio of their favourite superheroes this week .. at a distance!

Captain America, Batman and Spiderman paid a visit to Balgillo Nursery, Ardler Village to meet the ‘key worker’ children who are attending the nursery during lockdown.

The characters are from ‘Dundee Superheroes’, a group of five superheroes lifting the spirits of local children and adults during the current pandemic. The Superheroes are helping locals get through tough times while using their allocated daily exercise as an opportunity to run around parts of Dundee and raise money for Barnardo’s in the process.

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.

Astronaut Brings Space to Life in Lockdown

A real-life NASA astronaut, who logged almost 900 hours in space, is making a special, virtual visit to families ‘home schooling’ during lockdown.

Geoscientist and explorer Jim Reilly, who completed three space shuttle missions and five spacewalks during his 13 year career, has sent a video all the way from his home in Virginia for Dundee Science Centre’s Home Learning Programme, giving a remarkable insight into his extensive career in space travel.
