Learn to manage disappointment
Did you make a wrong decision? Again!? Eeva Vilkkumaa, a doctor of technology, has good news for you: you’re normal. We, people, are very likely to get disappointed whenever we make a decision. Luckily there's a cure. Oh-so-beautiful mathematical models can save you from that bitter feeling after saying yes. Or no. Come and help yourself!

Time to decide the future of Espoo
Our dear Espoo will look very different in the future. But will it be a densely populated nightmare for poor or a green, prosperous paradise for all? That depends on one thing. Idil Gaziulusoy, a professor of sustainability, will take you on a trip to future Espoo and help you find that one, vital thing in yourself.

Yay, Finland is doing space history!
"I think this could go something like this: space, dream, young energy, tragic setbacks, guts and then Finland takes over space.” Okey-Dokey. Meet Jaan Praks, the director for Aalto Satellite Project, who is determined to squeeze out as many wow-reactions from you as possible in 10 minutes. His show will be out of this world.

 Your greatest asset against hackers
A violent battle is raging around us 24/7. But cybersecurity professor and army captain Jarno Limnéll remains positive. The war against manipulation and fake news will not be won with bayonets or big guns. It is won with collective strength and willpower. And this captain has faith in you!
