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. A visit to Aalto Junior inspires children and young adults to learn through current themes and offers a sneak peek to the world of higher education.
