ABISCOPE / Science Outreach


Abiscope is a learning journey which guides tourists through the
natural landscapes in Abisko, and opens their eyes
to the subjects that Climate Impact Research Center's (CIRC) researchers are studying. Abiscope provides a new perspective on the environment using a series of outdoor interactive stations, a unique map/ telescope, framed vistas and visual captions. This system capitalizes on the natural surroundings in the area as a teaching tool, allowing visitors to see the environment the same way researchers do. Abiscope aims to outreach tourists’ interest in science and get in touch with the people behind scientific research.
