Test your curiosity and challenge your mind!
Vitenfabrikken is a science factory located in downtown Sandnes. The building rises over several storeys and has activities that combine “learning by doing” with focus on astronomy, energy, mathematics, local industrial history and the history of Sandnes. The younger children enjoy working at the “harbour” and running the crane. The older children enjoy testing their fear by catching the electric arc (500 000 volts!) in the Tesla-Coil.
Vitenfabrikken has a large activity programme during weekends and school holidays. Families can attend science shows, surf from planet to planet in our state-of-the-art planetarium, or join visitors’ workshops to build different things with their own hands or do science experiments. Vitenfabrikken has a café and a museum shop. It is located only a short walk from the bus and train station in Sandnes.
