The International Millenium Youth Camp is a free of charge programme addressed to young people worldwide interested in mathematics, natural sciences, information technology and other sciences. The camp focuses on these themes: environmental science and technology; climate change; renewable natural resources and energy; water; information and communication technology and digitalisation; and applied mathematics. It includes lectures, workshops, visits to companies and universities and time for social activities. The camp will take place from 3 – 11 June 2014 in Helsinki, Finland.
Millennium Youth Campers are young people interested in natural sciences, mathematics and technology who want to start up a career in these fields. The week-long camp has been organized every June since 2010, and during the camp, Campers are introduced to a number of Finnish companies and higher educational institutions. Also, they have a wonderful opportunity to get to know Finnish expertise and top-level research.
The most important part of the camp is project work supervised by top-level experts and carried out in small multi-national groups. Students will start working on the projects around 2 months before the camp online and will bring their work to completion during the camp. The Grand finale will be at the end of the camp, when students present their work at the Millennium Youth Camp Gala.
