Interested in collaboration with StarT?

The Finnish LUMA network is looking for cooperation partners and sponsors for the StarT programme.

  • StarT aims to coin a new kind of a learning culture in which collaborative project-based learning and the sharing of the joy of learning are the central features
  • In project-based learning children and youngsters carry out creative projects, creations, that are displayed at StarT events in Finland and internationally
  • StarT supports teachers and educators in schools, kindergartens and other learning communities
  • StarT is a long-term project that aims to root itself as a permanent part of work at schools and kindergartens

When you collaborate with StarT your name and logo will be advertised in many different contexts related to StarT.

In addition you can collaborate with the development of support materials for the project teams or teachers and educators.
