LUMA Centre Finland is the network for 13 regional LUMA centres within Finnish universities. The network ensures a national and international collaborative ecosystem to develop mathematics, science and technology education by providing activities and accessible resources throughout the country. The current LUMA ecosystem is a social innovation in which universities, schools, teachers, students, guardians, and industry are collaborating to engage all children and young people from age 3 to 19 in math, science, and technology and supporting research-oriented teachers at all levels for life-long learning. The LUMA Centre Finland promotes and fosters both national and international collaboration between educational institutions from kindergarten to universities, the business sector, educational administration, science museums and centers, teachers’ associations, and the media, as well as all other relevant organizations. The aim of the LUMA is mathematics, science and technology for all. The activities of LUMA Centre Finland reach altogether 400 000 persons (children, youth, guardians and teachers) each year.
