VÄRKKÄÄ JA TÖRKKÄÄ – TINKERING WORKSHOP

Tue 3.12. at 16.00–19.00, Stage & FÖNSTER in Think Corner/Tiedekulma, Helsinki

 

The tinkering workshop event is targeted at people of all ages, and the stations are open during its entire three-hour duration.

It is part of the Smart as HEL series investigating the intersections of accelerating digitalisation and human skills.

 

The Invisible made visible station is run by the researchers and engineers from the Helsinki Institute of Physics.
What is radiation? What is electricity? Come see and try out for yourself how the invisible can be made visible. Build an electric piano and disco lights.

 

A thermal imaging camera makes the invisible visible station is overseen by Peitsa Veteli from the Helsinki Institute of Physics (HIP), who is studying at University of Helsinki to become a physics teacher.

Does the world look different to a snake? Can the invisible be made visible, and can you leave hidden messages just by using your hands? Come and see what you can uncover with thermal imaging cameras!
