It's easy to find Tom Tit!
As a matter a fact, it's rather difficult to miss Tom Tit!
From the Central station, take the Järnagatan to the right, to Storgatan that goes right through the shopping centre and town square, pass the church and it's just beyond the old motorway bridge that crosses the canal.

The wood and brick in combination give the whole area a certain harmony, and a special place for new experiments hiding behind a bush or rock!

A restaurant and at least two cafe's, both indoor and out in the park, together with the souvenir shop where also the book "404 experiments" is for sale

From the spring 2009 I believe the science park has been extended to more than 600 experiments!

The fountain was "played" by people's feet on the platform to the right.

The picture above shows some of the registered earthquakes here at Tom Tits own seismograph.

The bottle launcher in the right center of picture, where we pumped up enough pressure to shoot a water filled bottle along a wire up towards the roof, releasing the water in a large shower over the rest of the visitors.
It was really fun, but pumping up the pressure almost killed me. :-)

At the strongest magnitude, when the shed moved a foot or so sideways, it was difficult to stand up straight.

Lots of experiments in every corner.

It was eventually demolished loudly by a kid that didn't understand it was built of small pieces.

To me this was another of Margarita's hidden talents!

The guy to the right jumped off the platform to give Margarita space when she arrived, and she did!

Don't worry, it's just another experiment!
Or, eh? I feel strange... dizzie...

It was supposed to be dry in there.


TT (46).JPG (288940 byte)

Hilarious at first.


TT (47).JPG (277955 byte)

Margarita's expression reflects the outcome.
We became soaking wet, and it was for sure cold water!

Severe storm created by a huge fan.



TT (58).JPG (176926 byte)

I can't help it, I do probably look like this even without a fan blowing a full storm in my face!
