The evolution of life on Earth is full of amazing episodes. But one story that really captures the imagination is the transition of the familiar, charismatic dinosaurs that dominated the planet for around 170 million years into a new small, airborne form: birds.

Dinosaurs Among Us is a flexible, engaging 2D panel exhibition exploring the fascinating evolutionary connections between living dinosaurs—birds—and their extinct relatives.

Raumschiff - The Maker-Space for Astronomy 28 February 2022

We are looking for a public engagement professional to work for our new project ‘Open Science Club’ aiming at engaging children and adults in astronomy over a longer period of time: science - a hobby just like music or sports. The club will be built around citizen science and open data. A variety of activities involving the local and international learning landscapes around astronomy will allow for individual learning paths. A good knowledge of German is a must.

Street lamps, illuminated signs and buildings – lights at night improve safety and make cities more attractive, but have also been shown to have negative effects for humans and animals. The problems of artificial light are commonly referred to as light pollution. In the citizen science project the Star-Spotting Experiment, people from all across Sweden help scientists measure light pollution by counting stars in the sky.

Maths Exhibit Prototyping Seminar

Five years after hosting an Exhibit Prototyping Conference, we were delighted to once again provide the venue for another exhibit development event. This time the interactive exhibits were based around a common theme - Maths. We were joined by representatives from ten science centres in Norway and had two busy days, building, testing, tinkering and developing ideas into great exhibits. Alongside the prototyping there were presentations and discussions on elements that make up a good interactive exhibit, and how to achieve best practices in exhibit design, development and evaluation.
