For the first time ever, RAVSAK and Technion - Israel Institute of Technology invite day school students to participate in the Technion Jewish Day School Challenge by building Pesach themed Rube Goldberg machines. Inspired by the Rube Goldberg machine created by Technion students to depict the story of Pesach, the Challenge asks day school students to make the project their own. Teams of students from Jewish day schools are invited to enter the contest by submitting a video of a Rube Goldberg machine that completes the task of revealing a Seder plate. There will be two divisions of the competition: middle school (5th-8th grade) and high school (9th-12th grade).

Israel's first science and technology preschool was inaugurated in Beersheba recently as part of a new government initiative called Madakids. Instead of puzzles, coloring sheets and learning blocks, preschoolers will be exposed to robotics, computers and space exploration. The goal of Madakids ('mada' means science in Hebrew) is to introduce scientific subject matters to young Israelis at the earliest possible age. This, administrators hope, will help produce the next generation of Israeli scientists. The Beersheba preschool is a collaboration of the American aerospace giant Lockheed Martin, the Beersheba municipality, the Rashi Foundation, the Education Ministry, and the Science, Technology and Space Ministry.
