The Geolab is a room for activities and learning, and to make children and young people excited about and interested in science and technology. Every weekend we have fun and educational activities for families, with makerspace and lab activities.
Experience our amazing periodic table with 118 different minerals, metals and figures! Try the bouldering wall with different routes and grips made from Norwegian rocks. Discover the link between geology and technology with our interactive stations and metal game.
The Geolab is also used to teach natural and cultural history to 3000 school students every year. The purpose is to get the children interested in the history of Kongsberg, focusing on the Silver mines, the industrial, social and cultural history as well as geology and science. We also want to give the students a better understanding of why we depend on mining for the prodution and development of technology, and as a prerequisite for the Green Shift in our society,
