Winter 2007-2008 - Working at school: 18 students
Studing about Energy production and consumption in Finland and consumption of Energy in other European countries:

Students were working in five groups. Each group was studying their own subject:
1. Consumption of Energy in Finland
2. Production of Energy in Finland
3. From which countries we import Energy
4. Consumption of Energy in Europe
5. Changes in consumption of Energy: past, now and future

Results of these studies were collected and using these results students made their presentation for Leppävirta meeting.

Groups were also discussing and studying about saving energy in our every day living – at home and at school.

For example couple of students were examining electric doors at our school. Every time the door is opened it will be open quite a long time. So temperature inside will decrease but how much? Normal door without electric mechanism will be opened shorter time.

In these measurements door was opened three times. First measurement is done using electric mechanism and second one is done without any electric help. Temperature outside was -5 °C.
