Program of Excellence ‎

A biennial course for 38 high-potential youth, 8th -9th grade, providing educational enrichment in marine science and ecology at the Ruppin Marine Science Institute, Michmoret


High-potential and motivated teens from the geo-social periphery are generally not exposed to after-school enrichment activities. This widens the gap between them and their more privileged peers. The program provides these high-potential youths with education enrichment in biology, physics, chemistry, marine science, and ecology at the Ruppin Marine Science Institute, Michmoret.
