A Foundation
Founded, November 1986
Opened to the public
January 1991
Since 1991, 6,3 million
visitors
The same as
1.000 visitors
on average everyday,

361 days a year
Visitors stay in average
4 hours
In December 2009,
Denmark is hosting the
World Summit on
Climate, COP15
This event has been a strong
tool for Experimentarium to
raise funds for new science
communication activities!
DONG Energy, Denmark’s
leading energy company,
has donated 1 million Euro
to an exhibition on energy
and climate change
The exhibition consists of
app. 35 exhibits on energy
production, distribution and
consumption
.. And on the impact on the
future climate
The daily dilemma:
The daily dilemma:
Reduce your life
quality slightly and
“save the world”

Reduce your life

Or not!!

surround the exhibition with
a lot of associated activities:
Educational materials, school
competition,
debates,
lectures and a
special Energy
Festival
The exhibition covers 500
m2 and shall open to the
public on 29 January 2009

into a travelling
exhibition
Approximately 20% of the
exhibition will be

It shall be
placed near
the COP15 at
the Bella
Center
Experimentarium have
received another 1 million
Euro to develop
and perform a
consensus conference for 3.000
students, age
16 to 18 years
The projects shall establish
a Resource Room
containing a lot of information
on energy consumption
and climate change
The consensus should
enclose the answer to the
questions:
The consensus should
enclose the answer to the
questions:
Is their a man
made climate
change?
The consensus should
enclose the answer to the
questions:
Is their a man
made climate
change?
What must we
do to reduce it?
The facilitators of the
conference is
Experimentarium’s
exhibition pilots
.. And special trained
students, that play the role
of a famous scientist
During the conference, the
students can consultate the
“scientists”
.. And seek information in
the Resource Room
At the end of the day, the
students shall have reached
a common decision on the
answer to the two questions
The success criteria defined
by the donator was 2.000
students to join the project
Up to now have more than
3.000 students joined the
project!!
All these activities would not
have been financed, if the
COP15 conference has
taken place!!
Thank you vey for your
attention!
