About us

Trondheim Science Center

 

Trondheim Science Center has encouraged curiosity and creativity since 1988.

The center is one of 10 regional science centers in Norway and is located in the middle of Trondheim’s historical centrum.

While visiting us you are encouraged to learn through interactive exhibitions, and we offer a hands-on experience where children and adults together can play, learn and explore.

A science centre is a popular scientific experience – as well as a learning centre for technology and the natural sciences. The centres' primary concern is conveying the excitement of scientific work and experiments, rather than just the scientific results. Science centres invite people of all ages to experience this and are especially targeting schoolchildren and youth.

The center has about 90 000 visitors every year and we work closely with the municipality and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology as well as local businesses.

We aim to be a resource for schools as we provide educational courses in experimentation, technology and design for both students and teachers.

Our primary goal is to inspire and motivate children and youth to learn more about the natural sciences and technology and choose an education in these subjects in order to secure recruitment within these fields in Norway.

We are a member of the following networks and federations:

- Vitensenterforeningen (Norwegian Science Center Association)
- The European Network of Science Centres and Museums (Ecsite)
- Nordic Science Center Association (NSCF)
