Scientific and Technological Entrepreneurship Program STEP
The Scientific and Technological Entrepreneurship Program STEP 2016 is launched, targeting both teachers and students this year in two separate contests, and providing them with the opportunity to transform their innovative ideas into applicable projects.
In addition to the students’ contest, and based on the successful experience of the project within the last three years, Al Nayzak launches, for the first time, “Science Teachers Excellence in Practice Program”; a specialized program that targets Science, technology and mathematics teachers in Palestinian schools, and aims at developing projects, tools and methods employed in scientific fields inside Palestinian schools, through incubating teachers’ innovative ideas, and promoting them in all Palestinian schools.
The Scientific and Technological Entrepreneurship Program targets students in the 9th, 10th, and 11th grades, whoe have innovative ideas for projects in the fields of science, technology, mathematics and engineering (STEM), to compete nationally in an exhibition and contest. The winners will have the chance to participate in a training camp in Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum in the United States.
