Nature interpretation for school classes

The centre has a certified nature interpreter whom can design a fun day of learning and activities, just for you! We accept all ages, from pre-schools to universities.

The theme of the day can be arranged to cover several different subjects, for example biology, social studies, Norwegian, ethics etc. We specialize in the themes:

  • Mountain ecology
  • Wild reindeer and arctic fox
  • The heavy water sabotage
  • Biological diversity
  • The principles of sustainability
  • The World Heritage Site Rjukan-Notodden

A day out of the ordinary

A thypical visit contains a guided walk outside, a movie in our cinema, a visit to the exhibition, and an assignment. Common assignments are reflective questions to answer in groups, a competition or a political debate. The day is designed to fit the individual school and class.

In the winter, we usually to on a 1,5-2 hours hike on snow shoes. We have 30 snow shoes for adults and 30 snow shoes for children.

The entrance fee to the exhibition is 35 NOK per student or child. Teachers have free entrance. All other attractions, included the services of the nature interpretator, is free.
