Students created addictive exercise-based games in Tampere
As part of their studies, the Business Information Systems students at the Tampere University of Applied Sciences (TIKO18) have developed various addictive games which encourage exercise and physical activity. At the end of April, the process of building and testing the games culminated in the TAMK Games Expo, where the audience, the commissioning party and games companies assessed and awarded prizes for the best games. The games promoting physical activity were commissioned by the Mikä saa mut liikkumaan? (What gets me moving?) project, which is supported by the department for sports and physical activity within the Ministry of Education and Culture.

Municipal elections, the lesser-known cousin of parliamentary elections. You've probably heard about them? Have you voted in them? Or haven’t you voted because you already went to the polls in those “real” elections?
