Amos de-Shalit Science Youth Camp

Mark your calendars towards summer vacation – we have a summer camp for you packed with science and fun: experiments, lectures and social activity that will leave you wanting more.

What is dark energy? Is our DNA really different than that of a fly? How do you make bacteria produce medicine? These are only just a few examples of the questions we will discuss during a full week of summer camp, which you will spend with 50 other members of the program from all around the country that love science just as much as you do. Before arriving at the camp, you will be asked to choose the scientific field you find the most interesting: either Biotechnology and Medicine or Chemistry and Physics. According to your choice, you will be divided in the mornings into two tracks, and in each track you will focus and deepen your knowledge in the chosen fields. In the evening, you will rejoin into one group again in activities such as, “Treasure Hunt”, talent show, games, riddles and more.  

On the last day of camp you will meet your parents in a big event during which you can show them all the cool things you have done and constructed during the week. They will also be there to watch you get certificates in a special ceremony. We already marked our calendars – now it’s your turn.

Lectures and workshops will be given by researchers and graduate students performing research at the Weizmann Institute of Science.
