Connect your students to cutting-edge science! Invite leading researchers to your class for a video conference and encourage your students’ curiosity

Do students ever ask you “what is science good for?” and “Why do we have to learn this?” iScientist enables you to connect your students to cutting-edge science, trigger their curiosity, and link your study material to up-to-date, groundbreaking research.

Through the program, science teachers in elementary school, junior-high and high schools invite a researcher from the cutting-edge of contemporary science to hold an informal video conversation with their students. Students are encouraged to ask anything they find intriguing in the field, opening up new worlds for them and introducing them to new role models.

The program includes:

  • On-line instruction session for science teachers
  • video conversation with the researcher
  • Suggestion of a preparation lesson for the video conversation, which will evoke the students’ curiosity and encourage them to ask questions.
  • Technical support via phone before and if needed, during the video conversation.

How can I join the program?

In order to participate, sign up to a short On-line instruction session delivered by one of the program members

The instruction session takes place in the evening (in Hebrew), and is about an hour long. In addition, you need a smartphone that enables you to download the application.
