Where does Finnish innovation and technological creativity grow? In a grandfather’s workshop, in the pile of rubbish at a clubhouse, in the woodshed of a summer cottage…Could our school be the workshop of a mad scientist or the atelier of Leonardo?
At Rajakylä School we have developed a space for learning by doing, experiencing, collaborating and working with challenging open problems and phenomena. As part of the our daily school activities we carry out technology projects focused on everyday topics. All projects include e.g. product design, collaboration, creativity and problem solving.
An integral part of class work is co-operation with local technology companies. A technology class is not a high-tech laboratory or a mobile learning class. It is a space for hands-on experimenting and learning by doing. We express our deepest gratitude to Technology Industries, local companies, the Innokas-project, Oulu University and Oulu University of Applied Sciences (OAMK) for the interest they have shown to our cause.
You can follow the technology class activities in this blog. We would also like you to comment our stories.
We are also one of the best Finish educational innovations. Read more from HundrED.
