Welcome to the IES Västerås Science Hub! Here you can find all sorts of information on what we are studying in lessons, useful resources, and cool stuff related to science...
Unfortunately there's no chocolate in this calendar...

Building the building-blocks of life!
To demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of cells, Year 6 at IES Västerås have been building models of these microscopic marvels. We were so impressed by the models they've made, that we couldn't wait to show some of them off!

Science Fair 2013
On May 30th, IES Västerås was very proud to hold its first Science and Technology Fair. Students across all year groups had spent several weeks before the fair working on projects in their Science lessons, which were then proudly presented to teachers, parents and guest judges.
We were lucky enough to have visitors, from organizations including ABB and Stockholm University, to act as judges for the Science Fair. They were very impressed by the work that the students had produced and awarded prizes for the projects they deemed to be best.
This was a hugely successful first Science Fair at IES Västerås, and we look forward to seeing more of the students creativity and innovation in the Science Fair of 2014!
