Once in a lifetime opportunity for young people interested in science – do you know any?

Next summer Technology Academy Finland (TAF) is once again organizing an international state-of-the-art science camp for young people between years 16-19. Anyone born between 1995-1998 can apply and all expenses are paid by TAF. If someone in your family or social networks would be interested, encourage them to apply by 15 December 2013. Wärtsilä is a proud partner of the Millennium Technology Prize, also organized by TAF.

The target of the international Millennium Youth Camp is to find young people interested in mathematics, science and technology, and help them start up a career in these fields.

The camp offers young people an overview of Finnish expertise and top-level research in the natural sciences, mathematics and technology. Students network with each other, with individuals in Finnish companies and organizations, and with top scientists. In addition to lectures, workshops and visits to Millennium Youth Camp partners, the program includes project work supervised by top-level experts and carried out in small multi-national groups.

Last year Wärtsilä organized a workshop for the climate change group and challenged them in building a sustainable and stable energy system.
