Learn and experience at Tabloo

Tabloo allows pupils to not only see billions of years into the past but also look far into the future. Time, in fact, plays an important role in the phenomenon of radioactivity. The role of Tabloo is to keep the memory of the nearby radioactive waste repository alive for 300 years and beyond. But how will it do this?

Visit Expoo

Pupils will go on a journey of discovery through the invisible world of radioactivity. They will learn what radioactivity is and what we do with radioactive waste. They will come to understand the concept of time and find out how the public can help to find solutions for radioactive waste. Finally, they become familiar with research into nuclear applications. 

With dozens of interactive exhibits, Tabloo's permanent exhibition offers pupils a unique insight into the world of radioactivity. A visit to the expo with an audio guide takes between 1.5 and 2 hours. If you would like to explore everything down to the last detail, you should allow around 5 hours. You can also book a guide, and the tour is two hours' long.

To measure is to know

Workshop for Years 5 and 6

Pupils gather around a gameboard with a case of measuring instruments and carry out tasks. Some tasks are active, while others draw on technique, creativity or concentration. Pupils will learn how a great deal of information can be gathered by taking measurements. They will measure various standard units, but also emotions or popularity. They will be given the opportunity to think about why we measure and consider both the past and the future. The workshop is run by a guide from Tabloo.

Available from September 2022!

They will learn how many factors have to be taken into account in order to successfully send a message to future generations. The workshop is run by a guide from Tabloo.
