Scientific Encounters for Families and Youth


Motivated by a deep-rooted belief that science should be accessible to all, the Hebrew University Youth Division holds three annual science encounters for families and youth from the wider community.

Each event – free of charge - focuses on a particular field of research and is designed to allow youngsters around the country to experience the joy of academic scientific discovery for themselves.
