Student Life

Competition and Teamwork

Each student is placed in one of the four houses, Pavlov, Russell, Curie, and King, and remains in this house for the duration of their time at IEGS. Everyone can flourish and grow within the house system. It creates a strong sense of identity within the school, and encourages friendship, support commitment, loyalty and dedication. It is also fun!

Lucas in NV3E made it to the Swedish Young National Research Team!

My name is Lucas Dow and I am a third-year natural science student. A while back, I entered a competition called Utställning Unga Forskare. Third-year students from around Sweden compete with their GYAR for prize money, scholarships and to be a part of the Young National Research Team (Unga Forskningslandslaget). I entered the competition, unknowing of what it really was. To my surprise, I advanced to the semi-finals in Södertälje. At the semi-final, students displayed their research on posters and with real-life demonstrations.
