Welcome to the science and research festival in Jyväskylä! During the European Researchers’ Night 2018, the University of Jyväskylä offers plenty to learn and see for the whole family.

The full-day multidisciplinary event celebrates science and researchers in various workshops, panel discussions and tours. In some of the exhibitions, visitors can challenge their previous perceptions on the Jyväskylä Teacher Seminary and it’s role in the civil war.

In workshops for children, you can get to know the natural sciences, learn about the Pokemon evolution, solve crimes in groups with the use of chemistry research and go on an adventure in a magic forest. You can also investigate the accelerator laboratory, test virtual reality games and join programming and robotics workshops.

For the adults there are interesting facts on brain research, the phases of the Finnish elementary school and active ageing. On “Insect Dating” you will explore the secret life of invertebrate and identify insect samples. The “Animals’ Fifty Shades of Grey” leads visitors into the fascinating world of reproduction. The work psychology café offers a work stress test.
