Research-oriented Physics Program

A unique program for students who were selected and approved by the Chief Inspector of Physics and is aimed at nurturing research skills

This novel, unique and prestigious program will expose students majoring in physics to the world of scientific research, while fostering the students’ personal responsibility for their own studies, encouraging creativity and promoting each student’s own initiative and imagination. The research project allows students to develop their skills in the areas of scientific research and web content, connects physics with modern culture and allows integration of physics with other fields of knowledge. For this program, each pair of students will perform a 5-matriculation-unit research project, in addition to the regular 5-unit physics curriculum they will learn in school.
