IESKista Take Part in the Erasmus STEAM Virtual Mobility

IESKista Take Part in the Erasmus STEAM Virtual Mobility

Students from IES Kista joined six countries for a virtual meeting to share good practices on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) for the Virtual Mobility Erasmus Project.

The virtual mobility project comprised of students from Romania, Italy, Ireland, Latvia, Turkey and Sweden taking part in a variety of different activites.

Activities took place over three days and included: building a pyramid challenge, the Great Wall of China zipline challenge and a coding challenge.

Virtual Mobility Project Erasmus

Organizing this activity was not easy, as they had to coincide meetings between the six different countires across the different European time zones. 

Representatives from the Erasmus STEAM Virtual Mobility project, who managed the event, said: "Thanks to Aiga Sorokina from the Latvian school who first planned the mobility which got cancelled in March at the last moment. But that didn't break her spirit. She had planned again from scratch for all the activities so students can do it individually online with easily available resources at home. Thanks to Massimo La Milia and Gisele Di Liberto from Italy for accepting the challenge. I know it was difficult but I admire your guts to try to make this virtual mobility possible. Cristina Nicolaita , Karamanlı Engin  , Sinead Counihan , Neşe Çelik, from other countries and Charlie Brown, Disha Saxena, Adem leff, Joshua Houpt, Naila Jinnah Brunelle, Adem MO from IES Kista-  there are no words to explain my gratitude for your support to make this project a success. Without you teachers this project wouldn't have been possible. Thank you all.". 






Students help to raise money for COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund

Bracelets for charity

Students in Class 7B are making bracelets to raise funds and act against #COVID19. The idea started with a few students in this class who felt that even the smallest change could make an impact.

Each bracelet costs 50 kr and 70% of the profits will go to the @who COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund.

Bracelets can be purchased from any 7B student at #IESKista. Any donations can be SWISHed to 0702651948 with the message “Corona”.

Team Kista Talk - Digital detox & alone time

Do you get enough alone time? When was the last time you went for a walk with yourself?

In this week’s Team Kista Talk video, Mr Östling Huhta discusses the importance of taking a digital detox and spending time with your own thoughts, especially during a pandemic.

You can watch the video here, or catch it on our school Instagram account, @iesk.kista.

From the Principal

Welcome back to school!

Welcome back to school!

Dear all,

Welcome back to school! We hope you have had a relaxing break under the current circumstances. As all of us come back to school it is just as important as before to follow guidelines and instructions to wash hands often, use hand sanitizer when you cannot wash your hands, keep your distance as much as you can and above all, stay at home when you have even the smallest symptoms of feeling ill.

We are very happy to have you all back and even though times are tough we should remember that the vaccinations have started and it is projected that by end of April most adults will have been vaccinated in Sweden, which means that life is slowly turning back to normal. The spring also brings the light and an explosion of green in April/May which is something to look forward to.

Finally, I would like to share the video we created for our students on their first day back,  here it is!


Your Principal,

Mikael Ö. Huhta
