The Union of Professional Engineers in Finland and Heureka have signed a three-year cooperation agreement. The Union of Professional Engineers in Finland is involved in developing Heureka’s impact program focusing on space. The popular nerdy derby car area in Heureka’s Idea Workshop is dedicated to the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland throughout the contract period. In addition, the Union will organize events for members at Heureka’s premises.
Members of the Union of Professional Engineers in Finland receive a 50% discount on a regular-priced adult admission ticket to Heureka (normally EUR 24). You can redeem your benefit at the ticket office by showing your membership card on the ILRY Mobiili app. The benefit is personal.
Build your own nerdy derby car
One of Heureka’s most popular attractions is a building site for miniature derby cars. This task requires science, technique, and testing – and a tad of engineering spirit. This site contains a wooden track where you can test the features of your car and time the car on the track – and above all, try to get your car through the track in one piece. At the nerdy derby car site, you can also meet theunion’s robot friend IN-551.
