Major events

The Know Your Science Festival held in the spring is LÜK's annual major event. TalTech research groups and private companies, operating in the field of natural sciences, will present themselves at the event. The goal of the project is to introduce students to science and opportunities for practice and final work. At the event, it is possible for all undergraduate students to establish relationships and find a future job in order to take the first steps in a budding science career.

What scientist wouldn’t like a quiz! After all, it’s a favorite pastime of Estonians. With fun questions, we bring together students from our own and other curricula to test their knowledge in the field of sciences.

Beer pong is a favorite sport among students! It is often practiced at both larger and smaller gatherings. Every year, LÜK organizes a traditional ÜK+ORG beer pong tournament, where the best TalTech student organization in beer pong is determined!

Winter holidays is LÜK's annual recreational trip that takes place at the beginning of the spring semester. The two-day event is full of exciting activities, fun challenges and memorable adventures. During the winter days, new active members of the organization take an oath and are recognized as full-fledged active members.

Small events

Learning science is not easy. That is why LÜK has taken it upon itself to motivate its members so that all students get the diploma they want! We organize motivational evenings at least once a month, even more during stressful times. We motivate ourselves with active activities, fun gatherings and exciting board game or movie nights.

Every month, we discuss the most important current issues and concerns within the organization at tea parties. We also collect new ideas for future events and share thoughts on various topics. Tea parties are gatherings with a pleasant atmosphere, and everyone is welcome to listen and chat.

Other projects
