Update from Science department - February 2018

Grade 8 students participated in ‘Teknikåtta’ in week 7. A competition in technology, mathematics and science for grade 8 students in Sweden. Some took up a challenge to programme a robot and solve a ‘Robotic maze’.

For their current unit on ‘Body Systems’ Grade 7s are  learning about how Enzymes act as catalysts to accelerate the chemical reactions in our body.

Our juniors, grade 4 & 6 are learning about Environment, Recycling, reusing, waste management and packaging. Grades 4s and 5s made different things using recycled material from home. These creative figures are kept in our library for display.

Our Grade 4s are participating in ‘Sveriges Viktigaste tävling’- The Battery Hunt by collecting used up batteries and making sure they are recycled properly taking action towards cleaner environment. They have collected 60 kgs used batteries so far!

Socks for Stockholm Stadsmission charity!

Socks for Stockholm Stadsmission charity!

Before the Christmas period, our students have been collecting pairs of socks to help the Stockholm Stadsmission charity to help the homeless. In little over two weeks, we had collected over 4000 pairs, which is incredible!!!!  We intend to give these socks to the charity over the next two weeks.

Students in House Newton collected 866 pairs, House Tesla collected 956, House Darwin collected 1171 but the winners with a fantastic 1247 pairs collected were House Celsius. Congratulations!

On behalf of IES Älvsjö, the Heads of Houses would like to say a huge thank you to the parents and the students for this amazing effort.
