The Labs for Schools training track offers teachers high-level lectures from faculty members, practical training in university laboratories and opportunities for collaboration with teaching peers enabling them to build new and exciting teaching materials for their science classes using innovative educational approaches, such as PBL (project-based learning) designed to elevate their teaching practices.
Advanced Study Programs
Key to the successful cultivation of Israel’s next generation of budding scientists is ensuring that teachers are up to date with the latest scientific research tools and discoveries. We provide cutting edge professional development opportunities for teachers, designed to bolster their scientific knowledge and to expand their curricula accordingly.
The Teacher-Scholars Program
Forging a two-way bridge between high schools and the university, this program brings PhD graduates into schools to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education to high schoolers, while continuing their research at the university at the same time. Through this unique educational approach, teens experience the world of academia and research coming alive before their eyes as they learn about scientific discoveries, first-hand in real time.
