From junior school pupils to university students: the Living Lab is a valuable place of study for many people. Every year the Living Lab trains dozens of students at vocational, college and university level. More than a thousand pupils also have lessons on location, and junior schools use over thirty lesson packs developed in part by the Living Lab.

Higher education

The Living Lab plays a key role within education about the environment. Students at all levels of education are given training in research methods and concepts relating to the sustainable environment.    

School education

In addition, every year five hundred school pupils carry out activities on location. Through play, the children learn about research, water quality and aquatic life. They learn about the possible properties of water, what kinds of creatures live in the ditches and what a water flea looks like close up.

The Living Lab has also developed a lesson pack for junior schools together with the  Leiden University Graduate School of Teaching (ICLON).
