Over 100 yeshiva students from around the country participated in Jerusalem College of Technology's (JCT) sixth annual Physics Olympiad last week.

The event was held in conjunction with the Ministry of Religious Services and the Ministry of Education as an initiative to "empower religious students in Israel and abroad."

“As an academic institution that advocates excellence, we conduct the Physics Olympiad to encourage religious students to pursue a high-level science education and to develop new ways of thinking and learning — and to aspire for greatness,” Olympiad Director, Dr. Evgeny Frishman. “Physics plays an important role in developing a number of important professions within the State of Israel’s economy. Our goal is that all who took part in this competition will understand the importance of physics not only in the scientific world, but to their country.”

Participants of the event, included 11th and 12th graders currently studying for Israeli matriculation exams. The students use their high-level science, technology skills and knowledge to advance through the competition in an almost academic decathlon-like fashion.

“As a college that is ranked among the top academic institutions which integrates women into the fields of engineering and computers, we were pleased to host the next generation of Israeli scientists,”  Head of JCT’s Tal Campus for women, Etti Stern. “JCT takes pride in empowering religious students with a high-quality science education without making any compromises on their Jewish observance.”
