Heureka offered lots of discoveries and new experiences

17.08.2016

In the middle of August, children from various safe and substitute homes went on a traditional end of summer trip to Finland. The adventure began on the ship – this was the first trip across the sea for many children – and continued with exciting discoveries in the popular Heureka science centre.

Most of the families brought children who had never before been abroad. The voyage itself was already a great adventure for many children. Heureka offered both the small and big children lots of joy of discovery and made them think of how such things were invented. Everyone found something interesting and acceptable for themselves. The children especially liked those exhibits where they could do something – biathlon, figure skating, cycling close to the ceiling, and driving a car – but, in time, they eventually visited all of the exhibits, learning how something worked. New knowledge surprised many small children. The opportunity to try out a wheel chair definitely taught the children to be more attentive, understanding, and helpful towards people with special needs.

During the trip, many children understood why they have to learn foreign languages and also understood how important it is if information is available in your small language when you are in a neighbouring country. They eagerly tried to express their thanks, ask, and say goodbye in Finnish. This eventful trip, full of exciting adventures together, gave them the chance to discuss topics which are not touched upon every day.|
