Science fair 2017

Science fair 2017

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.

Nobel Museum Researchers' Prize


We would like to congratulate IES Eskilstuna students Jakob Johansson and Axel Axelsson, 9G, for winning the Forskares Pris (Researchers' Prize) for their research and poster performed as part of Nobel Museum's Musikjakten research competition.


This is the second year in a row that students from IES Eskilstuna have won the Researchers' Prize!

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!

Follow the link below and click on the Facebook "Like" button at the bottom of the page to help them win! The three posters with the most "likes" will be submitted to a jury and they will select the winning poster.

The prize for the winning poster is three tickets to the Nobel Prize Ceremony in Stockholm in December!
