This year IEG Södermalm has the privilege of sending 4 students to Karolinska Institute to participate in the national summer research program. Four places from a national total of 20 students helps us to hold our average over the years we have participated at 18.3%. No other school can boast anywhere near that level of participation. But no other school has quite so fantastic students as we have!
This year’s participants are:
- Miriam Lukasiak (N2A)
- Christina Roek Hansen (N2A)
- Axel Hertgård (N2B) &
- Haider Raza Syed (N2B)
A big congratulations from the whole school.
