Camp content

Finnish co-students

We will recruit Finnish students who live and study in Oulu region to participate as co-students during the camp. Co-students will help to create social relations and develop friendships. They will share details about Finnish way of life, studies and their own life plans. Foreign students will form teams of four. Each team will be assigned a Finnish co-student to work with them intermittently during the camp.

Learning project

In teams, students will design and implement an innovative robotics project. They will learn about automation, developing embedded systems and product development. There will be specialist keynotes by programmers and IT industry experts. At the end of the camp, all projects will be combined into an 'Escape Room' game and best ones awarded.


Future Skills Camp was the winner of 2019 Visit Finland educational travel product competition. The camp concept was awarded for its innovative and fun way of teaching future skills.
