Theme courses

In addition to the long-term education, Arkki offering includes more than 10 different theme courses. Theme courses are designed around a certain theme or topic: hut building, urban planning, product design, fashion design, etc.

Children come and work in teams for 3 – 5 continuous days, working hard on a project that they really care and having a lot of fun along the way. Design thinking, STEAM skills and knowledge, 21st-century skills and qualities are extensively integrated. At the end of the course, the children know that they have succeeded in creating things that not many grown-ups would be able to complete, e.g. ideas for a new smart and child-friendly city, a hut village on trees, or a fashion show. This kind of achievement will boost a child’s confidence and self-esteem to continue their personal development.
