You can book an Aalto University researcher to visit your school and talk about their research in an inspiring way. The visiting researcher will organise a short science session in your class, where they introduce their research area, talk about their work as a researcher and answer the pupils’ questions.

Science and creativity as tools for the future!
Our workshops give the pupil groups an opportunity to explore current themes and learn about the working methods used in different fields
Teachers can browse through our free workshop offering and book a study visit, either as an on-site visit to the Junior Lab, located on the Otaniemi Campus, or as a virtual study visit, which takes place in the teacher’s own classroom. Junior’s contents make use of Aalto University’s cutting-edge research as well as methods that inspire children and young adults.
