The activities scheduled for the 5775 (2014-15) school year

• Professional development of teachers: MOHOT program (integration of teachers-researchers and industrialists)
• Physics
• Mathematics
• Water

• Excellence in sciences at high schools

1. A reserve of scientific leadership – grades 7-8.
2. A group for outstanding 9th grade physics students on the Achi Racov program.

• Final projects – 5 study unit level
Research work on science topics. The papers are moderated by members of the college teaching staff, and outside researchers in water sciences.

• Establishing a Water Research Station
Five research stations were established across the region, whereby each specializes in a unique field (food and biotechnology, water, agriculture and science, technology and physics, advancing health and medicine). The research centers are designed to provide advanced research infrastructures that serve as research and study centers. Carrying out activities at the research centers are part of a unique educational process in the Eastern Galilee, which may contribute to a large number of parties: science students and teachers in the education systems of the Eastern Galilee, providing a solution for the research projects of college students (Tel Hai, Kinneret, Ohalo, Zefat), education systems that provide professional development for science teachers and their students by means of ongoing science-technology support, academic institutions by helping to boost the number of students at science faculties, to industry by raising awareness of local residents of industrial activity in the region.

A three-pear program, grades (10-12) – Water and Engineering Cadets – for outstanding youth on the subject of water technologies and agriculture, in conjunction with Atidim Startup, industry, and the Galilee Development Authority.
The Magshimim (Cyber) program – the Magshimim program is an excellent three-year program for computer and cyber studies for youth in grades 10-12. There are several partners in the program: the Ministry of Defense, IDF, Rashi Foundation, the National Cyber Bureau, the Ministry of Education (led by Dr. Orna Simhon), various defense bodies, Rafael and MIfal Hapais. The program aims to significantly boost the number of graduates of the education systems in the country’s periphery who serve in the cyber facilities of the IDF and the national defense system.

Science Youth Leadership Group. Galileom Youth. This is a joint project with Beit Yatziv which operates a science leadership program that offers science studies while advancing social leadership and generates a stable platform for introducing large numbers of youths to science – physics and astronomy – studies, as well as empowering the youth both on a personal and social level. Selected young counselors undergo advanced training on leadership and the sciences, and take on greater responsibility for ongoing activities at the various communities. After they complete their high school studies, the young counselors can choose from three options: pre-army academic studies, shnat sherut, or army service or national service. The program graduates who have completed their army/national service may apply for a scholarship for academic studies. In undergoing academic studies, the students fill a meaningful role in the science education continuum whereby they mentor youth on the program.

Select Science Teams. Submitting top papers and projects for national competitions.
Science exploration projects. Studying science subjects at schools by studying how to investigate topics, for example through studies of the subject of water at primary schools in the Jordan Valley while the students conduct projects based on the research techniques.
Science program – primary schools, kindergartens, community: 4 afternoon science club activities which take place at the Kinneret College on the Sea of Galilee (astronomy, robotics, detecting colors and young scientists).
• Science fairs. A science fair including stations with demonstrations and activities on science topics, for communities in the Jordan Valley, Tiberias and the Golan Heights. The fair provides exposure for a science leadership program designed for primary school students.
Exposure and enrichment days (grades 10-12) and science tours focusing on water. Intensive day programs operated by the college, on a wide range of topics, for primary school and high school students. The students are currently taking part in enrichment and in-depth study activities, using the college’s facilities.
Science summer camps
1. There is also a pedagogic unit which provides pedagogic advice with the support of various activities and partner bodies.
2. There is an assessment unit which is responsible for examining the efficiency and efficacy of the activities, as well as coordinating and implementing research work in the field.
