Sensation: Dundee Science Centre

Some of the exhibits in the Robot exhibition which is on until 30th September
On Thursday I visited Sensation: Dundee Science Centre along with a number of council colleagues.  Staff at Sensation wanted to brief councillors on their work.  Between 2007 and 2009 I was a director of the company and so I was aware of the work of the centre.

The centre is an excellent visitor centre and is well worth a visit.  The centre also does a lot to promote science, technology, engineering and mathematics education.  It is important that science education encourages young people to look at science and technology as a career path.  Dundee and Scotland has a long history of scientific breakthroughs and we should celebrate this element of our history and look for more breakthroughs in the future.

Sensation is well worth a visit.  It also has a lot to offer in the field of education for everyone from babies to adults.
