THINGS WE DO

Hey student at Karelia-ammattikorkeakoulu or Itä-Suomen yliopisto - University of Eastern Finland (UEF)!

Now you have a chance to sign up for an EPIC course – to find solutions on how to inhabit Mars sustainably. The next course will start on Tuesday, March 19 so sign up now!

Wait, what is Epic Challenge?

It’s a course unlike anything you’ve experienced before. You will be developing solutions on how to produce food in Mars, how to design a vehicle that can operate on Mars or what kind of suit you need to wear when going there!

This 5 ECTS course will start on March 19 with a kick-off week where you will choose your challenge and get to know your team of students from different fields.

NOTE! It doesn’t matter what field you study, and you don’t need any specific skills beforehand.

Next course, next Tuesday, be there!

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration
LIVE LAUNCH: Astronauts Nick Hague and Christina Koch and Cosmonaut Alexey Ovchinin will launch at 3:14 p.m. EDT aboard the Soyuz MS-12 spacecraft to the International Space Station. 🚀 Hague and Ovchinin first launched to the space station in October 2018, when one of the rocket’s strap-on boosters failed to properly separate from the first stage, triggering a launch abort and return to Earth on a ballistic trajectory. Following their safe return, the crew was reassigned to fly with astronaut Christina Koch. This will be the first time for Koch and Hague to visit the station. During their six-and-a-half month mission, Hague, Koch and Ovchinin will conduct and gather research on about 250 experiments and prepare to welcome the first NASA Commercial Crew Program astronauts.

In their Final Competition yesterday team Gardeners beat the reference concept that was created by their mentor! Even though they couldn't quite reach it in their First Competition a couple weeks back, this time their light collection&distribution system was three_times_better than the reference!

Teemu Koljonen and Mareike Wienberg received special awards for their accomplishments during the course! Fantastic job guys!
