Knowledge is a response for the human needs of finding a place in the world; therefore, it is inherent in humankind. This article intends to show that the researches elaborated by students must be done in an ethical and systematized way, in order to provide a significant building of learning, and also to propose an investigative attitude when dealing with the unknown and the restrictions imposed by nature and society. In this kind of activity the assessment takes into consideration the involvement, participation, knowledge creation, development, journey and quality in the educational process. This paper is based on a research on second grade students and teachers from one private High School and one public High School in the city of Curitiba. The results show that the survey is a viable educational activity in the school environment and that teachers have a great influence on the education of future university student researchers. It emphasizes that teachers should be aware of their role as educators and that they also have to encourage the teaching-learning process in school. Thus, teachers should not accept copied research papers from students, and the students must know that this practice will not increase their knowledge.
