Aino Kuronen

Co-Founder and Head of Pedagogy

My background is from Helsinki University, Faculty of Education. I specialise in storytelling in science education. My career background is from elementary school, special needs and science education.

My career as a science educator for young children started five years ago. I've designed lesson materials, done pedagogical development for science learning environments, coordinated science clubs and teached science lessons. One year ago we founded Kide Science. I now use my knowledge for pedagogical design and product development. I've also done public speaking and been a face for a children's science TV-show called "Tiedonjyvä" in Finnish National Broadcasting Channel.

26 February 2019 | 12:30 - 13:00 | English | Kide Science: Young Child as a Scientist

Young children have natural curiosity towards scientific concepts and they ask fascinating questions. Early science education is extremely important, but the problem is that parent’s and educators don’t know how to teach scientific thinking for young children. Kide Science has done research for five years and created a playful science education model, that is ridiculously easy to use - just plug and play! Are you ready to make science great again?
