The Science Academy is an after-school enrichment program designed to engage students through hands-on lab experience and inspire a love of science without the stress of formal exams and grades. Exploring a wide spectrum of scientific knowledge, the program motivates even those who have not been science-oriented in the past, allowing students to see science as a process and a tool for innovation. Students engage in scientific research at the university level and obtain a synergistic understanding of science and Judaism.
The Science Academy’s approach is based on the Jewish tradition’s four integral ways to think about science:
- Ben Adam L’Havero (between person and community),
- Ben Adam L’Teva (between person and nature),
- Ben Adam L’Makom (between person and God),
- Ben Adam L’Atzmo (between person and self).
