The School of Electrical Engineering organises a Family Day for its personnel, alumni and invited guests on Saturday 15 September 2018 at 13–17. The programme has something to offer for everyone. The entry is free-of-charge, but requires registration.

There will be as many as eight workshops for children, such as making electricity from lemons and researching colours dissolving from colourful candies with real researcher equipment. The programme also contains short information bulletins about current issues such as cyber security, smart buildings and space technology. Furthermore, there will be presentations suitable for everyone on topics such as ‘Future of transportation’ and ‘Artificial intelligence´. For the little ones, and perhaps even older visitors, there will be a construction corner for compiling a sundial in the style of making paper dolls.

There will also be police cars and fire engines for everyone to view. To top it all off, you can test drive an electric car: approximately nine electric cars of different makes from Tesla to Volkswagen will be available for testing. Find more information about the programme and registration here.

The event will take place at Maarintie 8. There will be coffee, tea and small snacks for guests of all ages. Children will be served ice cream and ice lollies.
