A Window into the Future
Are you curious about what the future holds? Do you find science labs intriguing? Then take part in these online meetings, discuss with real scientists about cutting-edge research and learn exciting things!
"A Window into the Future" is a series of online meetings for high-school students organised by the Davidson Institute of Science Education. It introduces participants to some of the Weizmann Institute’s cutting-edge scientific studies as they engage in eye-level conversations with the scientists involved, in a lab environment.
Throughout the program the scientists share with the participants their personal experiences about choosing a career in science, their daily experiences in the laboratory, as well as the challenges scientists and researchers face as part of their work.
Ahead of each session, the participants will be provided with articles, videos, and presentations related to the research pursued by the scientist they will meet. Find here an example.
The program is conducted in English.
