Schack4an results!

January 29th, all our grade 4's competed in the chess tournament Schack4an, in the Eskilstuna Final. We had around 80 students from IES who came to school on this Sunday, very nervous and excited about the competition. And they all wanted to go through to the next final. After 3 thrilling chess rounds we had a result!

The students will meet year 4's from different schools, for example Strängnäs, Flen, Katrineholm, Nyköping and more! If they qualify, we will compete in the big Sweden final and meet students from all over the country!  We are very proud of our classes who behaved perfect on this day and did their best to win!

Musikjakten competition: Internationella Engelska Skolan i Eskilstuna

Students from 9G at IES Eskilstuna have created and submitted a poster for Nobel Museum's Musikjakten competition. Hundreds of students across Sweden participated by creating music using a digital music engine based on principles of evolution. Sounds were created by pairing and mutating the "genetic code" of other sounds through multiple generations to create new and unique sounds. Students then analysed data collected about both the sounds created and information about the users' musical tastes and habits to see if any trends could be seen.

In the final step, the students created a poster describing the research and their results, including a link to one of the new sounds created.

Our students' poster is one of the 25 finalists in the competition. Now it's time for the public to vote!
