MadaTech builds Israel’s future
A significant part of MadaTech's educational activities takes place in the Education Wing's cutting-edge labs and demonstration rooms. Here classes from Israeli schools can combine exceptional educational activities with a riveting visit to the Museum.
Specializing in informal education in a museum environment, MadaTech develops a broad selection of riveting educational programs, targeting youngsters of all ages - from preschoolers to high school students, as well as their teachers and educators. Programs are specially adapted by MadaTech's staff to address the various needs and requests of the different groups. Targeting schools around the country, MadaTech's multifaceted, multi-session educational programs are offered in the modern facilities and advanced laboratories and demonstration rooms of the MadaTech Educational Center. Programs are designed to broaden the young participants' horizons in a variety of scientific and technological fields: physics, astrophysics, chemistry, the environment, robotics, genetics, electricity, encryption, road safety, internet, mathematics and medicine. Additional programs for schools include special single-day science happenings on MadaTech's grounds, as well as mobile science labs, staffed by the Museum's educational teams, that bring science programs to young students in distant parts of the country.
MadaTech is annually involved in several nationwide projects: one is a novel program called Meaningful Experiences through Science Museums, conducted in collaboration with the Ministry of Education and local authorities, and combining activities at school and at the Museum. Another major project, the OlimpiYeda, identifies outstanding students from all sectors of Israeli society, and brings them together for advanced science workshops at MadaTech.
