Week 11

During week 8, 9 and 10 our dear students have once again conquered new victories. Week 8 16 students from year level 6 travelled to IES Jönköping to compete in the reading Olympics. I am very proud to inform you all that we came first, second and third in the competition. What a triumph!

Week 9 we sent three teams with students from year level 4 to Universeums plastic recycling competition. Students from across Västra Götaland send in 50 projects and gladly enough the jury announced that three of our projects were among the four best in total. A big congratulation from me and the rest of the team. What an achievement!

I would also like to thank the Junior club staff for hosting the great International Dinner event. 180 families took part and prepared dishes from all over the world.

I would also like to thank the PE department for organizing the Dance week. Wow!

This week we welcome GEST who will perform interactive theatre with our students.

Are amazing students in 6A won this year´s Chalmers teknik competion. We are so proud of their efforts!

Tekniska Samfundet är en förening som vill öka intresse för teknik i grundskolan.

1:a priset går till IES Krokslätt åk 6 i Göteborg

Grattis till vinnarna av 2018 års final i Tekniktävlingen, ISE Krokslätt åk 6 från Göteborg!

Framtida brist på ingenjörer och samhällsbyggare? Ja kanske, men inte här på Chalmers och definitivt inte under Tekniktävlingen! Fredagen den 9/2 tävlade 4 klasser i årets final av Tekniktävlingen för årskurs 5-6.

På Chalmers möttes 120 taggade elever i en spännande finalomgång. Det hemliga uppdraget gick ut på att bygga ett torn som skulle både vara högt men även stabilt. Lagen skulle samarbeta och bygga tillsammans med hjälp av Chalmersstudenter som coachade och peppade! Den här gången fick lärarna bara titta på.

Efter 45 minuters total fokus med diskussioner, nedrivna torn, omprövade teorier och pepp, stod äntligen tornen redo att mätas och stabilitetstestas!

IES Krokslätt åk 6 från Göteborg vann med sin konstruktion och tog hem årets vandringspokal. Alla finalister erhöll dessutom Tekniska Samfundets stipendium på 5000 kr och en pokal till skolan! 

För 25:e året i rad har mellanstadieelever tittat in i framtiden, byggt konstruktioner, utvecklat framtidens hållbara teknik och arbetat med en yngre målgrupp! Årets uppdrag handlade om  framtidens leksaker och elever från Västsverige och Umeå deltog med 117 unika innovationer. Totalt har ca 2400 elever i mellan- och högstadiet deltagit i Tekniktävlingen 2018.

On Friday week 6 yl 5 & 6 had a great day at Ruddalen.

We wish all our students and guardians a great Sports break!

YL 6 students went to the finals at Chalmers

YL 6 students went to the finals at Chalmers

Dear Students and Guardians,

During the fall term, half of the 6th grade students took part in the Chalmers teknik competition as part of their teknik class. The competition required students to design and build futuristic model homes. When building the models, they had to take the following criteria into account: Water supply, waste management, transportation, communication, design, geographical location and material selection. In January, 8 students from 6B were placed as finalists. They were in the top 6 groups out of over 4000 students competing throughout the city of Gothenburg. On the 24th of February, all of 6B had the opportunity to compete in the final competition round. Although they did not come in first place, we could not be more proud of them! 6B ended up winning 5000 kronor and a trophy as a class prize. Congratulations to the class of 6B, we are so glad you represented IES Krokslätt at the Chalmers teknik competition!
