(FI) Science for the whole family at the Joensuu Campus
On 28 September in Joensuu, the European Researchers’ Night will once again bring various forms of science and scientific research to the public. The main event will take place in the Aurora building on the university campus at 15–20. Already before the main event, scientific research is showcased on the morning buses, as our researchers will be interviewed on topics such as the everyday life of today’s kindergartens, edible insects, and how to get fit.
Workshops suitable for the whole family will be running in the Aurora building in the evening. You can have a go at chemical and physical experiments and tests, paint your own icon, measure your health, study ants, meditate, and learn from our researchers about 3D modelling in craft science. In addition, our history researchers will organise three campus walks, making it possible for you to learn about the history of the Joensuu Campus. The evening will culminate in an “Ask a Biologist” Q&A session, where our biology experts will answer audience questions about nature and animals. The programme also includes music performances and our Science Café! The European Researchers’ Night in Joensuu will be hosted by Mikko “Peltsi” Peltola.
The language of the Science Bus, the Science Sessions and most workshops is Finnish. However, English-speaking staff is available in all of the workshops, so we warmly encourage also those not fluent in Finnish to join in and get their share of scientific research!
