It all starts with a conversation. Rachel from the DYW Dundee & Angus team arranged an informal meeting with the new Learning & Engagement Officer for the HMS Frigate Unicorn, Andrea, to hear about how she was settling into the role and before either knew it, there was a plan to DYW-ify Andrea’s flagship event.

To celebrate Women in Science week Rachel took the opportunity to interview internationally renowned, local scientist/artist, Dr Mhairi Towler. Dr. Mhairi Towler originally studied Biochemistry at Dundee University. She went on to develop further skills and knowledge as a postdoctoral scientist in San Francisco before returning to Dundee. Back in Dundee she became involved in projects which mixed science, art and community together. Mhairi also began lecturing undergraduate students in Dundee. Through all of these experiences Mhairi saw that animation and science can work together to engage an audience and illustrate complex scientific processes.
