Enriching Science Education

The Weizmann Institute of Science places major emphasis on advancing science education in schools and in the public.

This agenda is advanced by the Davidson Institute of Science Education, the educational arm of the Weizmann Institute, leading the way in Israel by cultivating and nourishing a science-literate society.

Additionally, the Weizmann Institute and the Davidson Institute train thousands of science and math teachers, run internationally competitive summer science camps and tournaments, and offer a wide array of programs for students and the public, including at the internationally known Clore Garden of Science.

Dedicated to science education, the Weizmann Institute of Science – in addition to its graduate school – facilitates science classes for schoolchildren at all levels of ability, as well as programs aimed at encouraging girls and minority students.

Weizmann’s professional development for teachers produces an Israel-wide network of skilled science, math, and technology educators. Online programs teach math and other skills to young students worldwide. Festivals, workshops, science mobiles, and an interactive, outdoor science museum engage the public.

By opening the doors of the Institute – both real and virtual – to the community, Weizmann is sharing the creative spirit of discovery … and inspiring scientists of tomorrow.

Weizmann by the Numbers

  • Our graduate school educates one out of three science & math PhDs in Israel

  • 300,000 kids/year take part in extracurricular science education at Weizmann

  • In the 1970s, we established a tutoring program that has now helped one million needy children
