Orr Sharon / Technion Excellence Program

About Me: I was born in 2002 and grew up in Haifa. At the age of 8, I moved to the USA and lived in Albany, California, for a period of 5 years. After returning to Israel, my family settled in Ma’ayan Baruch, a kibbutz in the upper galilee.

My educational journey led me to Emek Hahula High School, where I focused on Physics and Chemistry as my major subjects. Throughout my high school years, I participated in the Magshimim program, which provided me with a solid foundation in coding and computer science.

During my army service, I served as a radio technician and was the sergeant of my platoon, but I wanted to do more. Through persistent efforts, a new unit was established within my battalion. The primary objective of this unit was to develop programs that could assist the battalion in its operations, and I was its first member.

I’ve always liked learning new things and have studied many new subjects through the internet and online courses.

Hobbies and other activities: I enjoy reading, hiking, and solving logic riddles.

When did you start the program?  Winter 2023.
