Let's build our future today
The planet-sized problems
The world around us is changing faster than ever. Never in the past have we faced such enormous global challenges as climate change or coronavirus pandemic. In the new world, the old ways of working are no longer fit for purpose; we need to develop new ways of observing and understanding the world. Only curiosity and courage can help solve the planet-sized problems of tomorrow.
The brave future makers
When curiosity knows no boundaries, you are free to do anything. You can explore, search, get excited and find more questions. And you might even find some answers!
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 and solve some of the toughest problems in the world – our future is built today.
Inspiring activities for all!
Aalto University Junior reaches 19,000 children, young adults, teachers, and parents every year. Our activities are diverse, and we emphasize courage and bravery to explore new routes and opportunities. It is important to us that no one is left behind, which is the reason why we strive to ensure that children and young adults from all backgrounds have an opportunity to explore what arts and science have to offer.
How do we inspire young future makers?
- We organise entertaining science and art camps, clubs and family events for children and their parents.
- 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.
- We support teachers by organising school visits, workshops, seminars, and other services to ease the school days.
