IASA students finalists in Intel competition

INTEL COMPETITION

RESULTS

 

 

Every year there are approximately 100,000 high school students in Israel who are eligible to participate in the renowned Intel Competition, held by Intel Israel, the Israel Ministry of Education and the Bloomfield Jerusalem Science Museum.    This competition is based on outstanding, innovative, hands-on, science and engineering projects. Out of the 100,000 eligible students, only a few hundred highly motivated and excelling students apply.  Only forty are chosen to compete in the Intel finals which took place in Jerusalem on March 11, 2014.  The competition was held in the Science Museum and the closing event was held at Israel Knesset.

 

Of the 40 finalists competing, 7 are students of the Israel Arts and Science Academy.   We are proud to announce that the first and second place winners were IASA students.

 

First place was awarded to Yarden Lichterman for her project in Literature entitled “The Canaanite Ideology in the Translation work of Jonathan Ratosch).  Yarden is a Humanities student at IASA.   She comes from the town of Shoham and is one of five siblings.  Her father is a history teacher and her mother is an educator.  As first place winner in the Intel Competition, Yarden will move on to an international European Union competition that will take place in Europe.

 

Second place in the Intel competition was awarded to Danny Yoskovich, a Biology student of IASA, for his biology project investigating the common molecular basis of Goche and Parkinsons diseases.  His family is from Jerusalem and he has two siblings.  Danny’s father is a physician and his mother works in a bank.  He will move on to represent Israel in the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair that takes place this year in Los Angeles, CA in May, 2014.
