The Young Researchers' Adventure
Are you crazy about chemistry? Nuts for nanotechnology? Astonished by astrophysics? How do two full days of laboratory experiments, lectures by experts and social activities, three times a year, sound?
The Young Researchers program offers outstanding high school students the opportunity to meet new, like-minded friends from all over Israel. This unique multidisciplinary program offers participants a chance to delve into astronomy and astrophysics, biotechnology and medicine, chemistry, nanotechnology, and many other subjects. Participants meet Weizmann Institute graduate students and scientists, visit advanced labs, and perform advanced scientific experiments. Evening hours are filled with fun social activities, including playing musical instruments, games, group activities, competitions, and more.
As the summer vacation approaches, you can apply for the Amos de-Shalit Summer Workshop, where you will carry out a research project on a topic of your choice. In this exciting five-day workshop participants carry out a research project in small groups in one of the Weizmann Institute’s research labs. At the end of the workshop, participants present their findings to your peers and family members.
