Curiosity as superpower

The humanity faces big, global scale challenges both today and tomorrow. Through children's eyes the world and the news can be distressing. That is exactly why our objective is to support children and youth’s natural curiosity and inherent interdisciplinarity; to endorse their agency and to inspire the participants to ask, ask and ask some more questions. 

We want to provide children with tools to interpret and research information, to think in a solution-oriented way and to build their self-confidence.

In a ever-changing world, we need to develop new ways of observing and understanding its limits. Junior helps children to grow up to be inquisitive and enthusiastic students and, furthermore, determined doers and adept experts in their fields.

Curiosity and self-efficacy as the problem-solver are crucial attributes when it comes to the future-makers’ desired qualities.

When curiosity knows no boundaries, you are free to do anything.

The brave future makers

Aalto Junior was founded to inspire the future changemakers in arts, science, technology, and economics. It provides a nurturing environment for all curious and daring minds. 

Building a solid foundation of positive experiences and heaps of encouragement is essential at an early age. It will help our children make important future decisions, find their own paths and discover their passions – our future is built today.

Junior is a welcoming home-base for the curious and adventurous ones. 

Inspiring activities for all

  1. We organise entertaining science and art camps, clubs and family events for children and their parents.
  2. We help young adults to dive deeper into science and arts through different events, courses, lectures, and camps. Young adults will also have an opportunity to meet inspiring industry professionals and get together with other like-minded people. 
  3. We support teachers by organising school visits, workshops, seminars, and other services to ease the school days.
