FOR ALL AGES - NO ENTRANCE FEE!

Welcome to the first ever Make It Festival in Turku - a creative event open to everyone! The program is suitable for children and senior citizens, and everyone in between. Try out new exciting technology, think about what tech you used when you were young and fantasise about where we might be heading.

WHY NOT TRY OUT THE FOLLOWING?

Step into virtual reality

Step into a virtual world and create your own colorful piece art. Or do you dare ride a virtual roller coaster?

Create a blinking Christmas card

Handmade Christmas cards are wonderful. Join in the fun and create a blinking card!

Think about tech then and now

What kind of technology was around when you were young? How do the same things look like now? What would you like to see in the future?

Print in 3D

We all know what paper printouts look like, but what about 3D printouts? How does it work and what is the outcome? 

Program robots

Programming Angry Birds or a new Spotify takes a lot of time, but all coding starts from the same basics. Are you able to program your robot? 

Make your drawing come to life

Drawing and painting is a lot of fun. Making your drawing come to life can be even more fun - or what do you think?

Create your own fake news

There is a lot of talk about alternative facts and false news stories today. Are you able to create your own piece of fake news and fool your relatives?

Test new interfaces

We are used to controlling our computers and phones with a mouse or touch, but why stop there - maybe we could use our feet, movements, or even fruit!

Have fun with beads, lego and paper

It may seem like new technologies are very different from old ones, but there are also lots of similarities. How can we program with beads, for example?

Do the Hour of Code

The Hour of Code is arranged all over the world in December, and naturally it is also part of our event!

Try out an interactive table

Tables are static and kind of boring, right? Try out an interactive table and figure out how it works.

Follow your eyes

Technology makes it possible to follow your eyes' movements in detail. Test it yourself and find out where this tech can be used. 

WELCOME!

Take along your kids, parents, neighbors, cousins or anyone you know to Hub Turku on Eerikinkatu 7 and join in the fun at 11-14! Something small to eat will be served at 12-14.

Hub Turku is a co-working space in downtown Turku, at Eerikinkatu 7 (opposite Julia). The location is perfect whether you arrive by foot, bike, car or bus. There is plenty of parking space in the surrounding neighbourhood and the buses stop just out the door.

OUR PARTNERS

The main organizer of the festival is Make It Finland. However, without our volunteers and partners this all would not have happened. A big thank you to all of you!
