Sustainable Orange House - Nordic Craft Competition

A group of IES Kista students have won the Nordic CRAFT competition by creating a sustainable house in the shape of an orange.

The students, along with Textiles teacher Ms Saxena, worked with different countries in the Nordic region to participate in the CRAFT (creating really advanced future thinkers ) competition.

There were a total of 7 teams from Denmark, Sweden, Greenland and the Faroe Islands. Our year six students, Cecilia, Hannah, Charlotte, Amina, Uzair, Dipto, Amir and Daniel, decided to make a house in the shape of an orange. The house had a solar panel, windmill, rain water tank with solar heater, community laundry area and community garden.

A special greeting from Nobel Prize winner Dr Torsten Wiesel

A special greeting from Nobel Prize winner Dr Torsten Wiesel

Happy Nobel Day! We are honoured to receive this special greeting from Nobel Prize winner Torsten Wiesel, who visited IES Kista last year.

Dr Wiesel, who won the 1981 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine along with his colleague Dr David Hubel, shares about the importance of having passionate interest for the work you do, because winning awards takes a lot of hard work and also, a little luck.

As Dr Wiesel says in the video, life is like a long-distance run. You must take care of your mind and body, and be kind and generous to others so that you can have a successful life.
