The Scientist Factory
The Scientist Factory (Forskerfabrikken) offers opportunities such as summer schools and half-day courses for children and young people that give them the opportunity to participate in exciting experiments under the supervision of professional researchers. Through such events, the Research Factory aims to encourage young people in Norway to study science and technology subjects. The organisation also offers training and further education for science teachers.
Ferd supports the Scientist Factory both financially and with practical support from its employees, particularly through Elopak. Elopak’s Technical Director chairs the board of the Research Factory.
