Nordic Science Centre Association (NSCA) was established as a result of a meeting in Finland in October 1987. It brings together the science centres in the Nordic and the Baltic countries and encourages cooperation and exchange of ideas.
Our goal is to popularise science by teaching and creating experiences through interactive objects and demonstrations. The association addresses organisations involved in the design, organisation and implementation of public engagement activities across Nordic and Baltic countries.
The NSCA holds annual meetings to encourage the discussion and exchange of ideas. Several members have also cooperated more closely by exchanging exhibits and exhibitions.
