Technion Program for Excellence

Roi Elia / Technion Excellence Program

About myself: I was born and raised in Rishon Lezion, and studied in a gifted class in high school. During my high school years, I took place in creating a tutoring program for students who required help for 4 years. I volunteered as a guide in a local science museum for elementary school students in my city for 3 years. I established a youth movement cell in my city, and managed the youth department of a political party during the elections for the city council. I competed in the national chemistry Olympiad, and had the amazing opportunity to travel to the International Chemistry Olympiad where I had the chance to meet students from all over the world who share the enthusiasm for science and chemistry. I was always interested in the different fields of science, and especially in the field of research, an interest which only grew as I took part in the International Chemistry Olympiad.

When did you start the program: Winter 2016.
