“This platform encourages high school students to be more active, think differently and it improves their learning,” said the project’s father Ari Ervasti, lecturer of mathematics and physics from Ylivieska high school, describing his own experiences with Innolukio.

Finland’s government will issue the first weekly assignment. The rest will be planned by businesses that are considered to be significant in the future. Experts from the participating businesses will aid the students in their tasks.

In addition to the weekly challenges, Innolukio provides students with inspirational statements and innovation presentations. More information about the possibilities of Innolukio is available in Finnish at from August 16th onwards.

JA-YE Finland encourages all high schools to participate in Innolukio’s challenge to create a more creative learning environment.
