FromLaboratory to the World

HYBTONITE®

  • invented and developed at NSC

  • composite material; epoxy resin reinforced using carbon nanotubes (CNT)

  • used in dozens of applications, e.g. sporting equipments, wind mill blades and yachts

  • many international prizes for the products:

    The Montreal Nitro® HYBTONITE® hockey stick was voted number one nanoproductin the world (nanotech 2006, Tokyo, Japan)

From Ekapeli to GraphoWORLD

Ekapeli is a learning game for Finnish children learning to read. Ekapeli has been developed in the Department of Psychology, the Agora Center and the NiiloMäki Institute.

The game’s international name is GraphoGame. The game has been adapted to other languages using the same basic principles than in Finnish: it is a child-friendly computer game that helps children to learn the letters and larger text units together with the corresponding sounds.

The GraphoLearning initiative including GraphoWORLD aims to assist millions of children to learn to read in their local language with the help of technology and the knowhow of the world’s best experts of reading acquisition.
