In with the old and the new!

A Brechin woman is thought to have been the oldest visitor to the Dundee Science Centre.

Mrs Nancy Allan from Brechin, who will be 96 in June, visited the Centre last Wednesday. Believed to be the eldest visitor to date, she has enjoyed a visit before but was a mere youngster in her 80s at that time.

On the same day the centre were joined with one of their youngest visitors, Lucy Hay and her eight-week old daughter Ava Elizabeth, who are regular visitors to the Centre’s new Baby Sensory Classes.

Lorraine Springorum, Operations Manager said: “The popularity of Dundee Science Centre to people of all ages proves that we are truly a community resource. From the Baby Sensory and Early Explorers programmes to our free-of-charge adults-only Reclaim events, lectures and other events, coupled with our Infusion coffee shop, we are well and truly here for everyone, as a place to meet, socialise and learn about the world around us. As Ava and Nancy are proving, we’re never too young or old to learn!”

Dundee Science Centre, Sensation is open daily from 10 am until 5 pm.
