Children are Designing the Environmentally Efficient Vehicles for protecting the Future and making it Sustainable.

The Dundee Science Centre has collaborated with the Dundee Museum of Transport to inspire children to explore the future of sustainable transportation.

At the ‘cars, COP26 & the climate and crisis event, which is currently taking place at the Centre until Monday, August 15, children can design their own eco – friendly vehicle to make the future more sustainable. In addition, kids can take part in a wide range of special activities with the normal admission prices. Visitors can not only design the sustainable vehicle but also can make turbines, compete in Sphero racing and explore the C5 Sinclair electric vehicle, which is designed in 1980s and given by the Museum of Transport on loan for some time.

Lorraine Lemon, Head of Business Development, Dundee Science Centre added,

"As Scotland steps up its participation in the race to Net – Zero, we must inspire and involve the younger generation. We are igniting enthusiasm among visitors of all ages by developing enjoyable activities that are all grounded in STEM fields and emphasis the part that each visitor can play in bringing about change and creating a more sustainable future."

Dundee Science Centre is delighted to be offering the exhibition with the Dundee Museum of Transport as both have been shortlisted for the Dundee and Angus business awards in the Net - Zero category in the hopes that it will highlight the contribution of science centres and museums to the transition to climate – friendly technology and lifestyles.
