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. A jury was responsible for picking the most impressive projects

After taking Best Novice Team two years in a row in 2016 and 2017, they set their sights on further improving their skills and performance. The school sent one very hardworking team of five students: Andreas Backman, captain, Daniela Tupan, co-captain, Akshat Deshpande, Dylan Bradford, and a brand new competitor this year, Didrik Bratt. 

Over the course of the weekend, the students had an undefeated winning streak of six for six when they headed into the final

What an incredible event, the IHC Song is one that both students and staff at IEGS really look forward to each year. To be able to sing in such harmony, acapella, is just amazing. The amount of practice, work and dedication that goes into this event is just phenomenal. Seeing an entire house, first years to third years, come together, cooperate and sing is always special. This years song choices were as great as usual; Curie singing I Want it That Way by the Backstreet Boys, King singing Riptide by Vance Joy, Pavlov singing It’s Time by Imagine Dragons and Russell singing Valerie by Glee.

Every year the traditional IHC Song takes place, where each house chooses a song that they sing acapella. This is an event where the whole house is involved, with around 200 students getting on stage and singing together. It is quite powerful and impressive! Since IEGS cannot hold 700 students and staff in the aula, the whole school makes its way over to Åså Gymnaisum down the road, and prepares for the event! It’s a great show of spirit, teamwork and of course talent too!

This year Ms Bogren and Mr Parnell were our hosts and they did an awesome job! They were very funny and kept us all
