TEK: Tervetuloa Future-Proof Engineering Education -webinaariin 13.4.2021

Kumppanimme TEK tiedottaa:

Tervetuloa keskustelemaan tekniikan alan yliopistokoulutuksen tulevaisuudesta TEKin ja alan yliopistojen kanssa #FPEE2021-webinaariin!

Viime vuonna yliopistot joutuivat muokkaamaan vakiintuneita toimintatapojaan pandemian vuoksi. Opiskelu muuttui radikaalisti. Tutkimusten mukaan opiskelijoiden hyvinvointi ja jaksaminen muuttuvat huolestuttavista hälyttäviksi.

Tervetuloa keskustelemaan hyvinvoinnista ja koronan vaikutuksista opetukseen sekä tekniikan alan yliopistokoulutuksen muista ajankohtaisista kysymyksistä TEKin ja tekniikan alan yliopistojen kanssa. Tilaisuudessa julkistetaan myös TEKin ja tekniikan alan yliopistojen yhteisen TEK Graduate Survey -palautekyselyn tulokset vuodelta 2020.

Aika: tiistai 13.4.2021 klo 12-15

From connective to collective actions: Collective physical support emerged from self-organized local virtual groups during the COVID pandemic in Belarus!

Blog for Urban Mill by Aliaksei Zanouski 30.12.2020, heading and subheadings by Urban Mill.

”My name is Aliaksei Zanouski. I am an architect and a student at the Urban Studies and Planning master program at Aalto University. During Urban Mill’s Otaniemi recycling days in December 2020, I had an interesting and fruitful discussion with Lars Miikki, co-founder and co-producer at Urban Mill. This occasional meeting reminded me of importance to be in the same space for networking and how casual small talk leads to an interesting discussion. I want to share with you some highlights of our conversation.”

Connective individual actions through social media networks

Poster “Structures don’t take to the streets” Minsk, Belarus. 27 September 2020. photo: Facebook post

In August as a response on fraudulent elections mass protests swept across Belarus demanding democracy and end of the 26-year authoritarian rule of Alexander Lukashenko. Despite a shocking amount of violence used against peaceful demonstrators, protests keep going since August. Media write a lot about Belarus recently. However, what is missing from international media coverage is an inner dynamic of the uprising which could be interesting to those who are interested in urbanity.

Like many other recent social movements uprising in Belarus could be categorized as a connective action. Coordination almost absent, the role of political parties and structures wasn’t significant. The movement was based on personalized content sharing across social media networks. Leaderless action without a defined political structure seems more sustainable against the repressive machine in a short term. Nevertheless, in most cases we know, connective action cannot sustain in a long run. Movements built on a mostly virtual ‘weak tie’ networks failing to get offline and build their own political structures. Is it the case in Belarus?

Get to know the Aalto Sustainable Business Club!

We recently organized our first event at Urban Mill this year – Get to know SBC – to expand the idea of Sustainable Businesses to more students. If you missed the event, here’s a short summary about what we do:

The Sustainable Business Club (SBC) is a vibrant community of students enthusiastic about sustainability. We were relaunched in the beginning of 2019 and currently have about 300 members. We organize various events, such as company excursions, panel discussions and movie nights. Our aim is to connect students with like-minded people as well as interesting organizations. We encourage multidisciplinarity, welcoming students from all fields with a passion for sustainability. Our aim is to make SBC more accessible, lead by example, and make sustainability more fun.

The Get to know SBC event was a success, with people attending from various backgrounds. We spoke about the club, ideated about weird sustainable startups, brainstormed on new designs for the club, learnt about energy, and had a fun time getting to know each other with good vegan food.

As our location partner, Urban Mill – with its focus on innovation – is a perfect collaborator. With the speed at which the world is progressing, in both good and bad ways, we need to be able to innovate and realign our paths quicker than ever before. SBC is built from a need to innovate, and Urban Mill is building an ecosystem of innovators. We’re looking forward to strengthening our collaboration and creating greater value for everyone involved.

From Espoo Innovation Garden: Finnish company launches a new solution to prolong the lifecycle of clothes

Lagoom startup team announces:

“The fashion industry is responsible for a significant amount of waste and exhausting resources. The fast-fashion phenomenon not only creates environmental damage and fair trade issues, but also a culture of overbuying and throw-away.

Right now we are working on a start-up – Lagoom App, a collaboration between Tavarapilvi Oy and gaIoTa Oy. We are a multidisciplinary team of people from different cultural backgrounds and professional expertise but we all share a commitment to sustainability. Our core team consists of Aalto University’s students who are passionate about innovation.

As a part of sustainable fashion solution we empower consumers to be more responsible and contribute more to a sustainable lifestyle, we created Lagoom App.

Lagoom.app is a completely new way of recycling clothes securely. The solution enables an easy and clever way of creating one’s own community, making managing, buying and selling clothes straightforward. ”Lagoom is the Tinder of second-hand clothes,” says founder Jaakko Isohanni.

To create impact, we ask for your support to spread the word to anyone who you think might be interested in our app. This will be a tremendous support to our project. We truly appreciate your support and are looking forward to hearing from you!

Please visit our website for further information or contact me via linh.nguyen@lagoom.app if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

Linh Nguyen
On behalf of the Lagoom Team”

Otaniemen lukion opiskelijat kävivät kemian kimppuun kokkailemalla Urban Millissä

Lukion vuosittainen kemian intensiivileiri toteutettiin tällä kertaa Urban Millissä. Kurssin tarkoituksena on tutustua tieteelliseen tutkimuksen tekemiseen ruuanlaittoon liittyvällä projektilla.

Opiskelijat ja opettajat kertovat:

Saavuimme aamulla 9.1. Urban Mill -yhteistyötilaan suorittamaan keittiökemian kurssin kokeellista osuutta. Pikaisen kierroksen jälkeen olimme vakuuttuneita Urban Millin olevan sopiva paikka tutkimuksen tekemiseen, sillä keittiössä oli hyvät työtasot ja maisteluun oli sopivan rauhallinen tila mukavilla tuoleilla.

Kurssimme opiskelijat jaettiin ryhmiin jo ennen joululomaa ja ideoimme silloin molekyyligastronomiaan liittyviä tutkimustöitä. Yksi ryhmä esimerkiksi tutki erilaisten marinadien vaikutusta pihvien mureuteen. Heillä oli mm. hapan ja emäksinen marinadi, joiden tuottamia tuloksia pohdittiin kemian kannalta.

Ryhmillä oli kiinnostavia projekteja, joita muut saivat maistella. Mm. erilaisia karamellikastikkeita, sekä erilaisilla tavoilla paistettuja pipareita. Eräs opiskelija kertoo: “Itse osallistuin tähän kinuskin maisteluun. Voin sanoa, että aika hyviä ne oli.” Pipariryhmän mukaan raaka piparitaikina voitti sokkomakutestin. Illalla pääsimme vielä yhdessä saunomaan ja viettämään iltaa. Osa porukasta osoitti selvää kampusalueelta tarttunutta teekkarihenkeä juoksemalle mereen asti uimaan.

Seuraavana päivänä tilaa hyödynnettiin vielä tutkimuksen raportoinnin viimeistelyyn ja esittämiseen muille. Urban Millissä on loistavat tilat tällaisen kokeellisen ja tutkimuksellisen työn tekemiseen. Tunnelma on rento, ja erilaisia huoneita löytyy. Esimerkiksi eräs ryhmä päätti perustaa leirin erääseen huoneeseen, jossa oli rennot tuolit ja sohva. ”Tuntui kuin olisi omassa autotallissa, todellinen man cave.”
