Iris Kolesnikov / Technion Excellence Program

About Myself: I was born in 2004 in Haifa, Israel. I studied at Alliance High School, majoring in physics and biology. Throughout my high school years, I volunteered as a tutor, assisting students who encountered challenges in mathematics and physics. Following my graduation, I served a year in national service at Madatech, Israel's national museum of science and technology. There, I worked in a digital fabrication laboratory, gaining proficiency in various CAD softwares, delving into the intricacies of electronic systems, and honing my skills with a diverse range of computer-controlled tools.

Hobbies and Other Activities: Beyond my academic pursuits, I have a profound passion for hiking, finding solace and inspiration in nature's embrace. In addition, I enjoy the practice of yoga, which nourishes my mind, body, and spirit. I also find much joy in reading, particularly historical and philosophical literature that broadens my understanding of the world.
