They will work alongside distinguished Israeli scientists while enjoying a rich Jewish and cultural experience in Israel.
Students from around the world will discover why Israel has established its reputation for tech entrepreneurship, meeting some of the country’s leading scientists and visiting research institutes that nurture Israel’s talent.
The program will explore applied scientific disciplines that are beyond the scope of the typical school classroom, and stimulate students’ minds with challenging projects beyond the limits of their school curriculum. Research projects will help students learn to collaborate and create closer links with international peers who share similar interests in science and technology.

World ORT hosted its annual STEM Summer School in Israel in July, creating a remarkable platform for 20 exceptional students with a passion for STEM fields. These hand-picked students from ORT network schools in 12 countries were given the chance to develop their skills while working on university-level projects at Braude College in Karmiel.
Our STEM Summer School provides the ORT network’s most gifted students with an opportunity to spend three weeks receiving a unique, profound learning experience in Israel.
A sense of excitement always pervades the start of a World ORT summer programme and this year’s Davidson-World ORT Summer Science Institute is no different. But as the first of the science institute’s three weeks drew to a close the tingle of anticipation only increased.
Summertime. It’s when, according to the song at least, the living is easy. But for 20 ambitious teenagers this summer the time was right for undertaking post-graduate level research at one of the world’s leading scientific institutions – the Weizmann Institute.
“The camp made my passion for science bigger. If I had any doubts about what I wanted to do in life, these doubts disappeared – I am now sure this is what I love. I have to go after my dreams, using all the tools that I gained in all these years of study at ORT, which I am sure will give me an advantage compared with other people my age.”
