Economy students in year 3 are getting ready to start their final research project.  During this project, students are required to combine all of the knowledge they have acquired during their three-year program and show that they are ready for the workplace and/or higher education within their field.

The Royal Coin Cabinet is the national museum of economy with a special interest in history of money, history of finance, economic and social history and the art of medals.

During our theme days in August, Economy students kicked off their work with visits to the Royal Coin Cabinet and SUP46 (Start-Up People of Sweden).  Students participated in workshops, attended lectures, viewed exhibitions, and talked with

professional entrepreneurs.

When reading the student reflections after these two days, it is easy to see that these visits were inspirational and thought-provoking:

A great “kickstart” to our final project!

 

 

About kristylundstrom

I currently work as Head at Viktor Rydberg Gymnasium in Djursholm. I am a student of learning. I am interested to see where it happens, when it happens, and how it happens. I am also a math and computer science teacher. I have lived in Belgium and in the USA. I really appreciate my multi-cultural environment - I believe it adds dynamics to our school.
