Forskerfabrikken (“the Science Factory”)

We are a partner of Forskerfabrikken (“the Science Factory”), a social entrepreneurship initiative started in 2002, that aims to increase the understanding of and interest in industry and technology among children and teenagers.

Forskerfabrikken initiative (“the Science Factory”)

Forskerfabrikken offers courses and summer school programs in research and mathematics in all counties throughout Norway. In addition, the company is working to strengthen science education in kindergartens and schools by running courses for teachers. As a result, Forskerfabrikken has inspired more than 100,000 children to engage in science and math through its courses since 2002. Together with Hydro, they have arranged 47 weeks of summer camps which has been attended by more than 1,100 children. 

Technology and innovation have always been a cornerstone for Hydro’s success, and through Forskerfabrikken’s fun and fascinating approach to science, we believe children can be inspired to put away their screens and explore the world around them. There will always be a world of opportunities behind the surface of science, and we need future generations to help us shape tomorrow’s knowledge.  

Indvirkning

Ved at opbygge kompetence og interesse for videnskab, teknologi, teknik og matematik tilbyder projektet aktiviteter omhyggeligt designet til sensorisk stimulering og samarbejde mellem voksne og børn, der udvikler sociale færdigheder og fremmer kreativ og videnskabelig tænkning. Sammen med kurserne modtager hver elev en detaljeret beskrivelse af aktiviteter, og hvordan man kan udforske videnskabens vidundere på en sjov og underholdende måde.

Antal nået

I de sidste år har initiativet nået ud til 300 studerende om året. I samarbejde med Forskerfabrikken har vi også uddannet lærere og personale til at være en del af programmet.
