Two 10th-grade Haifa students have been awarded an unusual and valuable first prize - a score of 100 percent on their physics matriculation examination - for winning a national Weizmann Institute of Science competition to produce a safe that cannot be broken into, reports The two boys, from Haifa's Hugim high school, won the competition after building the unbreakable safe based on physics laws. It was the first time their school competed in the prestigious contest, which attracted dozens of schools from around Israel and from abroad.
