Welcome to the the follow-up to our popular 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.


Build your own drawing robot

What kind of art work can your robot produce?


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?

Navigate with numbers

Come build your own island village by collecting resources with a boat! Will you escape the pirates?

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? 

Bring your drawings 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 traditional materials

It may seem like new technologies are very different from old ones, but there are also lots of similarities. Creativity is always needed when building something new!

Build your own computer

How does a computer work? What parts are in it? Come and build your own paper computer and learn about what you can find inside a computer. 

Try out an interactive table

Tables are static and kind of boring, right? Try out the interactive table built at Åbo Akademi 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. 

Take part in our treasure hunt

By collecting stamps from the different workshops you can finally find yourself a treasure? Will you succeed? 

Bring out the inventor in you

What fabulous idea would you like to implement? What is your invention?  

Let's dance with binary numbers

How can we combine binary numbers with dancing? 

Visit the Make It photo booth

Remember your visit to the Make It Festival by taking a picture in our photo booth. There you can find all kinds of props to make you photo extra nice.

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!

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.


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!


Got a question? Do you want to arrange your own workshop during the festival? Do you want to support our event? Get in touch with Linda Mannila on!
