Access to good education is usually related to the place of residence and socio-economic status.
Nitzan-Matanel Summer Science Camps (Tastes of Science) aims to integrate elementary and middle school students from Israel’s social and geographical periphery, who are motivated and have potential into unique programs in universities for science-seeking youth during summer vacation. The programs are one to weeks in duration and are expected to reach 155 students in 2022. The purpose of the project is to:
• Expose the students to high-quality and diverse content to encourage creative thinking and curiosity
• Introduce students to academics and give them the knowledge that academic studies are within their reach.
• Support the desire of program participants to succeed and reach a high level of academic achievement.
