Dundee Science Centre Science @ Home kits for Summer 2021

Activity: Other activity typesOther


Six kits were created and funded by the University of Dundee. Each kit had a different theme and represented research that takes place in different parts of the University. They were:
- Microbiology (from SLS and dentistry)
- Plant Sciences (from SLS)
- Medicine Makers (from WCAIR)
- Forensic Science (from LRCFS)
- Anatomy (from CAHID)
- General STEM (from SLS)
The kits were put together and distributed by Dundee Science Centre to families referred via the FORT system. This system puts Dundee families in need in touch with a range of service providers, through referrals from GPs, social workers, teachers and others. Two hundred children received the kits over the school summer holidays.

Toothbrushes and toothpaste in the microbiology kit were supplied via the Dundee Dental School Toothy Tigers project. They were generously provided by Colgate Palmolive (Toothpaste) and J&S Davis (Toothbrushes). Toothy Tigers members are: Shannon Polson, Iona Goldie, Lizzie Beard, Cara Marcuccilli, Priyanka Shah, Faizaan Rafiq and Seyed Aleagha.
