Participants coming from abroad must have a valid passport and a visa for Israel. A SciTech staff member will be in the Arrivals Hall of the Ben-Gurion International Airport (located after customs) with a "SciTech" sign and will meet all arriving participants on the first day of the program.
When booking a flight please make sure it reaches Israel on the morning of July 24th. If you wish to reach the Technion independently, you will need to be at the Pre academic ("Mechina") building by 15:00 on July 24th.
Upon arrival to the Technion, SciTech participants will meet their research mentors, team colleagues, social counselors, and will get to know the campus environment.
During the program, there will be day and weekend excursions across Israel.
Participants are accomodated in modern, fully-equipped student dormitory apartments. Each apartment houses 5 rooms, with one participant per room, a kitchen, a dining room, and a bathroom.
Kosher Breakfast, lunch, and dinner will be provided to all participants by SciTech. Any additional snacks may be purchased by the participants' own expense. Except for the pool cafeteria, all cafeterias and eateries on the Technion campus are kosher.
