My Science Center
Nordnorsk vitensenter, where I work, was established in August 2002. The idea of science centres is rather new in Norway and the first centre was established in 1996. We are located at the former Northern Lights Planetarium, a spectacular building at the campus of the University of Tromsø. We love our Planetarium, although the building has some drawbacks. Our space is limited, and we have chosen to primarly work towards the schools, offering activites on request. To become the science centre we wish to, we need much more space. So we are trying to get fundings to expand on site from the present 800 square metres to approximately 3000 square metres. So if you have 60 million Norwegian Kroner to spare, please donate them to us!
