Children’s University Provides Small Answers to Big Questions about Science

​The Children’s University organises science lectures and science workshops in the spring and science camps in the summer. The science lectures has university experts presenting their research to schoolchildren aged from 7 to 10. At the end of the lectures, the children have a chance to ask the researchers some questions.

In the summer camps, children get to be "scientists" and conduct hands-on experiments. The themes of the camps range from physics to robotics, astronomy, biology and history. The age of participants varies between 10 and 15 years, depending on the camp.

The registration for both lectures and camps takes place in March. Please note that the lectures and most of the camps are held in Finnish. The Camp of Natural Sciences and History  11–15.6.2018 will be bilingual (in Finnish and English). You can register for the camp here.

The University of Turku was the first university in Finland to begin the Children’s University project in 2008. You can learn more about the activities of the Children’s University through photographs and videos.
