Israeli teens win global physics competition (again)

(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) Youngsters from the Ilan Ramon Youth Physics Center in Beersheba, Israel notched an achievement on a global scale Wednesday by winning yet another prize in the “First Step to Nobel Prize in Physics” annual competition, widely considered the world’s most prestigious science prize for high school students.

Between 2007 and 2014, the Ramon Center has placed Israel as the world leader in prizes for physics research conducted by high schoolers. The center has won 45 total prizes during that period, leaving countries like South Korea, the U.S., and Russia far behind. The Ramon Center operates in conjunction with physics teachers from across the Jewish state to identify the most gifted southern Israeli students.
