Increasing Children’s Interest In Research

Forskerfabrikken works to spread the joy of science and understanding to children across the country, and gives them the opportunity to immerse themselves in these subjects in their own local communities.

Since 2002, they have inspired over half a million children to explore the exciting world of science through research courses, summer schools, educational toys and by offering continuing education courses for educators in kindergarten and school.

Learns How Technology Affects Society

Fewer children and young people choose science subjects at school, a trend that can lead to society failing to solve complex problems or to drive technological innovation. The lack of STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) competence may also mean that society is not adequately prepared for the challenges posed by technological development and climate change.

Forskerfabrikken wishes to increase children’s awareness of how technology and research affect them, society and nature. They do this by spreading the joy of science and understanding to children all over the country, giving them the opportunity to immerse themselves in these subjects in their own local communities. Since 2002, the company has inspired over half a million children to explore the exciting world of science through science courses, summer schools, educational games and by offering continuing education courses for educators in kindergartens and schools.
