On the 13th of December IES Kista opened it’s doors to students as well as parents and guardians of students to a vernissage come concert. Above is Ms Fagerlund greeting guests.
The students here at IES Kista produce some amazing pieces of art within the aesthetic education, ranging from incredible high quality pieces of woodwork to abstract and beautiful art created in arts, and the Aesthetics Gala offered an opportunity for the students to display their creativity and skills for a broader audience.
The visitors of the Aesthetics gala were guided through the school, viewing pieces of art proudly displayed by students.
The Aesthetics Gala saw around a hundred visitors and they enjoyed a fantastic Lucia Concert performed by the Student Band here at IES Kista, directed under the watchful eye of Mr. Brown, one of our music teachers.
The Gala was much appreciated by students as well as parents of guardians and we at IES Kista take real pride in the work produced by our students and look forward to hosting the next gala during the spring term om -18.
Here at IES Kista we have so many different and inspiring projects going on. One of them took place in one of the well equipped and modern Science labs, where the students were assigned do design a project demonstrating how pressure works. There were a lot of well thought out projects, however, one stood out. A robotic arm was designed and built. The assignment was laid out over the period of a week, where one and a half lesson was designated for designing and thinking a project out.
Using the google classroom technique and our disposal, one of the students designed and built a fully functional robotic arm. Please see the pictures below. The way the robotics arm works is with the help of three, double fitted pistons, moving the robotic arm in three directions. The robotic arm is controlled via a control pad where the different pistons is filled with color coded fluids, each fluid controlling a different movement.
In addition to this, three students from IES Kista is participating in the EDU-ARCTIC technology competition, where students are performing research on the difficulties facing the polar environment around the world. The research ideas submitted by the IES Kista students span over the spectrum of problems facing the arctic, among others the hunting of polar animals and the consequences of polar tourism.
On the eve of the 13th of December, IES Kista is hosting a combined Lucia and Aesthetics gala come concert. There will be a concert in the auditorium at 17:00 and after that there will be a vernissage of our students amazing aesthetics pieces, ranging from arts all the way through to woodwork. IES Kista would like to invite all parents and students to this magical evening, lighting up the dark of December with music and arts!
