Fascinating voyage into science and technology
Fun science and technology activities for children of all ages!
Children are born with natural curiosity. Activities that involve experimentation, discovery and hands-on working are great ways to teach children in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) subjects.
We at Tiedekoulu have developed a theme-based curriculum in the fields of natural science, robotics and programming which are also our learning paths. Children can start already at the age of 4 in our groups. We have advanced groups available up to 16-17 year olds. During these learning paths children gain very profound knowledge and skills in science, robotics and programming.
Teachers in Tiedekoulu are all trained professionals in their own field. They practise learner-centered, inclusive approach that supports and challenges each child. Children pursue their own interests and passions and reflect on their learning.
Educating children in STEM prepares children for life regardless of the profession they choose - children learn problem-solving skills, analytical and logical thinking, creativity and persistance. May sound boring, but it's not - children love learning, children love experimenting and hands-on practical working. We already arrange science and technology education in 25 locations throughout Finland. Our team of teachers consist of over 40 scientists, programmer, engineers and teachers. We have over thousand children each semester attending our groups and camps. Join us and let the fun learning begin!

Rewarding learning moments into the intriguing world of natural sciences! In our Science group, you can study the phenomena of the sciences.
Tiedekoulu hobby groups are held in Finnish.
The hobby groups follow Tiedekoulu's curriculum. An academic year is divided into level groups of two semesters. After studying semesters 1 and 2, the student can move to the next level. For example, Robotics 1 includes semesters 1lk1 and 1lk2, after which the student moves to Robotics 2, and so on.
The semester of contact and guided online lessons include 15 lessons held once a week.
In Mini- and Science groups (Mini-, Tutkijakerho), the lesson is about 45 minutes.
In Mini- and Robotics (Mini-, Robottikerho) and Programming groups (Koodikoulu, ohjattu verkko-opetus), the lesson is about 60 minutes.
In Makerspace groups, the lesson is about 90 min.
The enrolment for the fall semester reserves a place for the entire academic year, while the time of the lesson remains the same for the spring semester. Those who started in the fall semester do not need to register separately for the spring semester.
The place for the spring semester can be cancelled before December 1. if the child does not want to continue the hobby or wants to switch to another study path.
Registration is binding for the entire semester. The tuition fee is not refunded during the term, even if the student drops out or does not participate in the hobby.
New elementary groups also start in the spring semester. Registration for the spring semester opens in November. It is also possible to join some of the continuation groups in the spring semester if there are places in the group and the student has the necessary skills.
The fall semester fee forms while registering. The invoice can be paid after registration in the online bank or via the invoice on the confirmation e-mail. The invoice for the spring semester is sent via e-mail in December.
