A Window to the Campus #7: Science Education

This video highlights one of the Weizmann Institute’s top priorities: advancing science education for all and creating a scientifically literate society. In addition to its graduate school, the Institute facilitates science and mathematics classes for schoolchildren at all levels of ability, as well as programs aimed at encouraging girls and minority students. Weizmann’s professional development for teachers produces an Israel-wide network of skilled science, math, and technology educators. Online programs teach math and other skills to young students worldwide. Festivals, workshops, science mobiles, and an interactive, outdoor science museum engage the public. By opening the doors of the Institute—both real and virtual—to the community, Weizmann is sharing the creative spirit of discovery...and inspiring scientists of tomorrow.
