Water days

We implement water education days at the field station for school classes from pre-school to secondary school level and also provide material that can be used in the schools.

The water days are much more than an excursion, but build on approved pedagogical concepts. More information (Swedish only) can be found on the Swedish version of this page.

Education for teachers

We offer courses in Swedish for primary and secondary school teachers. Please switch language to read more.

Research school

The research school is a 3-week course aimed at students in the age between 16-19 from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland and Sweden. The research school consists of a series of lectures and practical sessions, but mainly by a 100 hour long research project that the students plan, execute and report in pairs. In the end the results are presented in a written report, a poster and an oral presentation.

The research school has been implemented since 2002 and are much appreciated by the students as well as the teachers. Participating student gain valuable contacts and research experience and many of them are still in touch with us.
