At the end of October this autumn I, together with two other natural science students at IEGS, had the wonderful opportunity to go to Grenoble to visit ESRF, a synchrotron facility. Which obviously is a thing we all talk about on a daily basis. It is an electron accelerator, producing X-rays. Which might be even more confusing.
My name is Matilda Froste. I was one of the in total twelve girls who had sent in a contribution to a physics competition that would take us to ESRF and the city in which it lies. We quickly realised using English as a mean of communication in France wasn’t the most
We, the French 5 and IB French B higher level students at IEGS, went on a trip to Lyon situated in the South West of France. The purpose of the trip was to practice our French skills and to experience French culture. In just four days we did a lot of fun things! We stayed at a beautiful apartment, just like the ones in French movies. The sunrise was visible over the rooftops through the kitchen window, and the sunset from the bedroom window. The apartment was located in the nice neighborhood along the Boulevard de Belges, a short walk from the red metro line station Messéna. After our arrival
IEGS students in their third year taking Geography recently went on a field trip to London, accompanied by their teachers Mr. Bjarnestam and Mr. Walker. As part of their studies on the Geography 2 course, the aim of the trip was to investigate the urban geography, plans for sustainable urban development and city planning of London. On the trip the students carried out field work in the form of surveys at various locations in the city, asking Londoners about their knowledge and habits regarding sustainable transportation, water use and more.
The trip also included a number of visits
Operation Wallacea is a network of academics from European and North American universities, who design and implement biodiversity and conservation management research programmes. Research is supported by students who join the programme, to strengthen their CV or resume or collect data for a dissertation or thesis. Academics benefit from funding for high quality fieldwork enabling them to publish papers in peer reviewed journals. This model enables the collection of large temporal and spatial datasets used for assessing the effectiveness of conservation management interventions.
