On May 18th, IES Eskilstunas annual Science fair took place, focusing on working according to the scientific method. All students in grades 4-5 had worked hard for several weeks with their projects.
In year 4, the theme was to invent something that could give man a lighter weekday and in year 5 the theme was to use physical principles such as the inclined plane and leverage principle to build a Rube-Goldberg machine.
During the day of May 18th, all classes had different activities connected to the physics and engineering subjects and they were also given the opportunity to visit other classes to see their work. Each class had appointed two projects to exhibit their work in the gym hall, which then competed against each other in the struggle to win the big gold trophy.
The day ended with all guardians being invited to look at all the nice projects and the award ceremony in the gym hall.
