Glasgow Science Centre has announced Dr David Sibbald OBE as its new chair. David is currently the executive chair of Aridhia and board chair of Sumerian, two growing tech companies, and has a great deal of experience of bringing his entrepreneurial experience to third sector organisations. He said: "I like that the science centre helps to democratise science. The centre is more than just a visitor centre - it will draw people through who might otherwise be turned off or scared of science. I believe that this outstanding venue will play a key role in driving forward education around the need to attract more people into science and engaging kids, parents and teachers is part of that."
