The activities scheduled for the 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 in 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 researchers in water sciences.

Establishing a Water Research Station

Five research stations were established across the region, each specializing 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 is 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 local residents’ awareness to 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 youths in grades 10-12. The program has several partners: 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 youths 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 (a volunteer year), or army or national service. Program graduates, who have completed their army/national service, may apply for a scholarship for academic studies. During their academic studies, the students fill a meaningful role in the science education continuum by mentoring youths in the program.

Select Science Teams:

Submitting top papers and projects for national competitions.

Science exploration projects:

Studying science subjects at schools including learning how to investigate topics; for example through studies of the subject of water at primary schools in the Jordan Valley, in which the students conduct projects based on research techniques.

Science program –

primary schools, kindergartens, community: Four afternoon science club activities which take place at 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 to 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 take part in enrichment and in-depth study activities, using the college’s facilities.

Science summer camps.

  1. A pedagogic unit provides pedagogic advice with the support of various activities and partner bodies.
  2. An assessment unit is responsible for examining the efficiency and efficacy of the activities, as well as coordinating and implementing research work in the field.
