FCLab Tulliportti

The FCLab Tulliportti is located in the University of Eastern Finland Teacher Training School. Teacher training schools are administratively part of the faculties or units of education. Tulliportti Teacher Training School operates in two different units, primary school grades 1-6 being located in Länsikatu and lower secondary grades 7-9 as well as upper secondary school in Tulliportinkatu.

Our lab at the moment is the whole primary school and we are expanding the ideology to the other units of our school.
