Young Researchers

Excelling high school students: How do two full days of laboratory experiments, lectures from experts, and social activities, three times a year sound?

The Young Researchers program is your opportunity to meet new like-minded friends from all around the country. The multidisciplinary program will provide a taste of such topics as astronomy and astrophysics, biotechnology and medicine, chemistry, nanotechnology, and many others. You will meet the Weizmann Institute’s graduate students and scientists, visit advanced labs, and perform advanced scientific experiments. The program’s social activities include playing musical instruments – and games – together, or participating in group activities and competitions.

Over the summer vacation, you can perform a research project on the topic you choose, as part of The Prof. Amos de-Shalit Summer Workshop. During the camp’s five days, you will conduct research in groups of two-three students in one of the Weizmann Institute’s research labs, and, at the end of the camp, you will present your findings to your peers and family members.
