The Scientists in Schools programme takes Aalto researchers to classes

LUMA Centre Aalto offers scientist visits to primary and secondary schools and to high schools.
Aalto Math Camp 2012

The researchers organise small science sessions in the class and introduce their research field in a fun way and give interesting demonstrations on a suitable level for the students. They also tell students about their work and answer the students' questions.

The schools can request a certain topic or researcher based on their own interests and plan the content of the visit with the researcher. The visits are free of charge to schools.

Scientist visits are part of LUMA activities that are aimed to support and advance studies of mathematics, natural sciences and technology (STEM) at all levels of school. There is an electronic form schools can use to invite a scientist on the website of LUMA Centre Aalto.
