“What if… “ event offers the wittiest activities of the spring for the whole family

Take your whole family with you and join us on 19 May at Aalto University’s Otaniemi campus.
Children in a laboratory

“What if…” event is a part of Aalto University Junior’s activities. Aalto University Junior concept was launched in the beginning of 2018. It brings together all the Aalto University’s fields of expertise and offers activities based on these for children and young people. Activities are organized both at schools as well as on Aalto University’s campus.  

For children and the young the event offers workshops, where they can test, for example, how many lemons are needed to light a LED lamp, how robotic cars move or how to make colourful sugar rainbows. In the workshops one will also learn how to make an animation and what light is.

At the same time adults can enjoy a cup of coffee and listen to Aalto researchers’ interesting talks about why online shopping is so compelling, how indoor air quality affects working efficiency, how digitalization affects social interaction in families and what is the hype around design thinking.

Welcome to the "What if…" event on 19 May between 10 and 14 at Otakaari 5, Espoo! The event is a part of Aalto Festival 2018 programme and is organized in Finnish.
