Technion Program for Excellence

Ofir Shorer / Technion Excellence Program

About Myself: I was born in 1995 in Lehavim, Israel. During childhood, I was a member of a competitive Triathlon group, competed inside Israel and abroad, and won Israel’s Youth Triathlon championships.

During high-school, I took part in a scientific delegation to the Large Hadron Collider in Genève, Switzerland. I learned mathematics in a unique program, in which I conducted several theses and participated in national competitions and conferences.

I graduated the 3 years program – “Young Researchers”, at the Weizmann Institute of Science, where I conducted an immunology research and was elected to represent the state in an International Science Camp.

After graduating “Eshel HaNasi” high school, I served 5 years in the IDF, 3 of them as an officer.

Hobbies and other activities: I have a unique passion for sports, especially triathlon. I love to play my acoustic guitar, learn new spoken languages, and read biographies of leaders and history books.

I love to see eclectic music shows and explore new fields of interest.

When did you start the program: Winter 2018.
