Description

Did you know that one of the world's leading mathematicians was born not far from Sandnes? Visit us at «Vitenfabrikken» and explore Abel's sketchbook. How many meters of DNA does your body contain? How long can you keep your balance on the skateboard? What is 101 in the decimal system? How heavy is your brain? Can you relax more than the person next to you? Perhaps you'll be invited on a guided tour through the planetarium to take a closer look at Orion, Pegasus and the other constellations. You can also learn more about Leonardo da Vinci and his inventions! And don't miss the exhibitions of the town history of Sandnes 2nd floor.

The Science Factory is full of exciting things to do and discover, it is the perfect place for anyone with an inquiring mind. Everything in The Science Factory is connected to science, technology and art. Exhibitions, theatre performances, films, workshops and demonstrations: You will smell, hear, feel and see how the world works. After a visit to The Science Factory, you will know how good your balance is, how fast you react, how warm your brain is, what happens when you flush the toilet, how strong a spider web is and much more.
