I had a 5-second mental shock when a student, while finishing twisting his first Khinkali, asked me:

"Mr. Ulloa, this is not right, right?"

She thought that the way she twisted her Khinkali was not well done because it was not the same as the one she reviewed in her theory lesson, while I delighted in that masterpiece she dared to call "disaster."

Most of the time, teachers ask their students for X; sometimes they get X + 1. Here's a proof... Home Economics Year 8 students, going that extra mile by being more creative than they were asked for.

Year 8 Bridge Project

Year 8 Bridge Project

Mr. Petersen and the Year 8s have studied and built bridges in Technology class.

This is what they said:

"The bridge project is meant to teach the students how forces work, during our project we mainly focus on tension and compression. After a series of lectures they will use their knowledge and apply it towards building a bridge made out of popsicles, string and woodglue. This they will produce within three lessons.

"After completion we will test them by putting stress on the bridges through the use of dumbells, when they will no longer suffice we use people as weights."

Check out a video of their project here:

Autumn Fair at IES Länna

Autumn Fair at IES Länna

Not even the cold and rain could keep us from having a blast! On Saturday, November 9, the PTA at IES Länna hosted its first annual Autumn Fair. This event attracted 500 visitors and enlisted the help of over 100 parents, students and staff. Attractions at the Autumn Fair included a food truck, activities run by several local sports clubs, a visit from the local police, bake sales, a loppis, a book fair, and science demonstrations by IES Länna students and staff. It was incredible to see the talents of our students and the dedication of so many at IES Länna to our school and its culture.

A huge thank you goes out to the PTA parents, as well as all the others who helped make this event a huge success. We can't wait for our next big event!
