Scientists in Schools

Would you like to know how a solar cell works or what kind of mathematics went into your mobile phone?

Invite a scientist to your class and let them explain!

LUMA Centre Aalto offers scientist visits to primary and secondary schools, and to high schools. The researcher organizes a small science session in your class, including: introducing their research field in a fun way, giving an interesting demonstration for the level of the students, telling students about their work, and answering students' questions.

You can request a certain topic or researcher based on your own interests and plan the content of the visit with the researcher. By planning the session in co-operation with the researcher you can tailor the content for the level of your students and guarantee a fruitful visit.

Get to know the participating scientists and their research fields, and use the electronic form to invite a scientist. In case your schedule does not fit with the researcher’s, we will do our best to suggest another one.

The visits are free of charge to schools.

Fill in the form and we will be in touch!
