Julia Gelmanovska of Class 8e has been accepted into the Young Scientists Summer Programwith Astra Zeneca. There are only 40 places for grade 8 students -- 20 in Gothenburg and 20 in Stockholm -- so, this is amazing for Julia to be part of this program.
The science department at IEST Senior School have also been working with the Nobel Museum and Lund University to help them with their research, investigating the health of the honey bees in Sweden. The students have collected bees from the local beekeepers and dissected them to send off the 'honey stomach' to the researchers at Lund University.
Lund University will analyse student results and send them back information on what they have found out. The students will then display this scientific research in a poster format. So, not only will they be doing science that will be used in real research, but also -- if theirs are chosen as the best poster -- they win tickets to the Nobel prize giving!
