This semester, grade 6 from SIS Männedorf-Zürich, was able to pilot the soon to be school wide platform, Office 365. Office 365 is a cloud based software that provides online access to MS Word, Excel and PowerPoint, cloud storage and has the possibility to create teams and shared blogs.
Grade 11, from SIS Zürich, were able to analyse their own DNA during an excursion to the academic world. They extracted, duplicated and purified their DNA from their oral mucosal cells. As a result, they hope to get the base sequence of a piece of their mitochondrial DNA and to find out about the geographical origin of their ancestors.
Each year we intend to make the SIS international school network more tangible by hosting an intercountry activity. This year the activity is devoted to photography. On 2 April 2019, students from all 16 SIS schools will spread out on their school grounds to capture their life on that day. The best shots will be published in a photobook.
