Research in basic education

Science teaching is implemented at Imatra in four different areas: Future Living Environments studies, the Saimaa Geopark course for pupils in grades 8–9, robotics studies and upper secondary school cooperation.

A pure water study module has been compiled for class 3 students. The pupils familiarise themselves with the circulation of water in nature and the waste water and water consumption generated at home. 

The pupils can study the basics of circular economy based on the learning material prepared by Etelä-Karjalan Jätehuolto Oy. The portable Circular Economy box contains the teaching materials needed in the lessons, such as laminated sorting instructions, task papers, correct solutions for tasks and waste for sorting lessons. The Circular Economy lessons will be organised in the academic year 2021–2022.

The Universoma studies of pupils in grades 8 consist of a multidisciplinary learning module. The studies include assignments, project work and visits to the Lappeenranta campus of the LUT University. In the academic year 2020–2021, pupils in grades 8–9 may also take part in the Saimaa Geopark course.
