April 21: Trondheim Science Center

Ted and the kids checked out the Trondheim Science Center yesterday. They have Norway’s first and only 3D planetarium and 360 theater. https://www.vitensenteret.com/

It was a pretty standard children’s museum, but a good one.  The electricity section had a manually commuted electric motor, which Ted appreciated.  One of the biggest hits was a reaction game, which would drop plastic batons around you at random and you had to try to catch them.  Anders won.

What does Anders eyes with Nora’s mouth and hair look like?  Kinda like Ted’s sister Matty.

The Orbitron.  All three rotational degrees of freedom — roll, pitch, and yaw — in nested gimbals.  Not good for people who don’t like to be upside-down.
