SciTech is a highly sought-after program and a life-changing experience for students with outstanding ability in Mathematics, Science or Computer Technology, and interests that go beyond the everyday classroom experience.

The intensive three-week program is offered to a small group of high achieving Australian students from Years 10–12, giving them an opportunity to join like-minded talented students from around the globe. Students gain hands-on experience in the Technion’s modern research labs under the supervision of Technion faculty members. The students are hosted on the Technion campus for the duration of the program and participate in touring, cultural and social activities as part of the program.

“We are extremely proud to have such quality Australian representation on the program. The Technion is known as an international centre of scientific and engineering excellence – home to some of the worlds most influential and ground-breaking discoveries.

By interacting and learning from some of the most renowned academics in Israel, SciTech enables our students to tap into the core of what shapes Israel as the startup nation. It is an exclusive opportunity to not only strengthen the bi-lateral, academic ties with Israel but also contribute to the development of Australia’s future entrepreneurs.” says Ori Danieli, Executive Director at Technion Australia.

Thanks to a generous gift donated by Evelynne Cherny in memory of her late husband Manfred Cherny, Technion Australia is proud to be able to offer two financial scholarships for participation in the program. These have been awarded to Ran Ashkenazi from Masada College and Sara Goldberg from Moriah College.

“I’m so excited to go, I’ve heard incredible things from the students who went last year,” says Sara. “They talked about the amazing scientific aspect of the program and also the social aspect and making contacts from all over the world. I can’t wait to experience that, and I can’t wait to work in the state-of-the-art labs. I’m particularly interested in the medical aspect of the program and discovering how to use innovation and new technologies to invent something that will make a difference, help people and better the world.”
