Our mission is to give back to the community in Israel by focusing on education in an area we are passionate about – scientific innovation. We are assisted by partners, donors and supporters who share the goal of advancing scientific and technological excellence, one of the key economic growth engines of the Israeli economy.
With this goal in mind, we are taking on the challenging task of inspiring the imagination of Israel’s younger generation. Our vision is to set an example that motivates the future generation of our country thereby energizing the Israeli start-up nation.
American astronauts have captivated the imagination of Americans from generation to generation, and have marked society at large throughout the world. One of the achievements of a project of this scale is shifting science to a center stage position; thereby enabling Israeli scientists to become the admired heroes of future generations. The success of this project will facilitate the widest possible exposure, encouraging young Israelis to pursue meaningful careers in science and technology.
Why Focus On Education in the Sciences and Technology Fields?
An essential national resource
Technological education leads to national and global leadership. In a country that is short on natural resources, and renowned for its ingenuity, science and technology play a major role in the economy as one of Israel’s central resources. Advanced scientific and technological education is the backbone of development and success in a multitude of fields.
An instrument for social mobility of individuals
Scientific infrastructure is a seed that bears fruit after a decade or two. Scientific and technological education is at the heart of scientific infrastructure. Knowledge failures increase socioeconomic gaps in our society and intensify social differences. Providing an equal opportunity to all is highly instrumental in advancing weaker socioeconomic communities. Therefore, it is crucial that special efforts are exerted to impart basic knowledge in these fields and promote education in peripheral regions.
