Naama Schor of the Environmental Education High School in Sde Boker; Tal Cohen, Amalia Ben Asher and Yuval Feldman of the ORT Psagot High School in Karmiel; and Butrus Mualem of the Baptist High School in Nazareth constituted the team.

Four of them won Intel International Science and Engineering Fair prizes and will represent Israel in the international Intel competition next May.

Schor was cited for her project linking the biological clock of morning or evening types with levels of ethics in decision-making; the project on which Cohen, Feldman and Ben Asher worked for three years was their “combo infusion” technology, in which the patient’s arm can automatically and efficiently receive infusions on a rotating basis from various bags.

The Israeli competition in Jerusalem has been held at the museum for 20 years on National Science Day, the birthday of Albert Einstein, in cooperation with the Education Ministry and the Israel Academy of Science.

Preparations for next year’s content is beginning now. Any teens who are doing projects for matriculation or an engineering project at the level of five units in technology, math, computer sciences, life sciences or environment can apply at www.mada.org.il/young/.
