Israel Sci-Tech Schools Network is excited to host its first international conference focusing on science-technology education in the 21st century. Attendees came from all across the world to discuss how to tackle the challenge of how to prepare students to successfully enter the global high-tech industry and economy and society.
NY Gala 2013
Five supporters of Israel Sci-Tech Schools Network were awarded for their contribution to the Network at our annual Gala in New York City.

New York Street Labs
On May 7, 2013, some of our top students traveled to the Big Apple, set up a tent in Union Square, and showcased a variety of student-created technological solutions that can benefit the everyday lives of New Yorkers. They proved that sci-tech education is fun and builds careers. Visitors were delighted to try out the inventions and do experiments themselves.
Tel Aviv – Street Labs in 2014
Minister of Science, Technology and Space, Yaakov Peri, asked Israel Sci-Tech Schools network to set up a tent in Tel Aviv’s Rabin Square to launch Israel’s National Science Week. We also set up “Street Labs” in malls. Hundreds of curious children and adults crowded into the venues to view and learn about the high-tech scientific engineering innovations of our advanced students. We aimed to inspire sci-tech education by showing it is fun and can lead to great careers.
