What Do the Finns Have to Say?

I'm using part of my Fulbright experience to conduct video interviews of the Finns.  They have quite a story to tell!

A shout out to the following people for letting me interview them over the past few days.  Their voices will be added to my project!

Kirsti is working on the LUMA Centre project to build curriculum so that chemistry comes alive (and more meaningful) in home economics classes.

Maiju is heading up the LUMA Centre's project for home economics and chemistry teachers.
