Intensive training starts today at the Davidson Institute of Science Education. To raise the achievements of the Israeli team, the Ministry of Education has given the task of selecting the team and training its members to the Davidson Institute of Science Education, the educational arm of the Weizmann Institute of Science. As of today, preparations for the Olympiad, scheduled for July 2011, are entering an accelerated phase.
Along with the individual work, the students will participate in a five-day sleep-over training camp in February at the Laub International Youth Village on the Weizmann campus. Here, they will take part in intensive ‘workouts’ led by Davidson Institute staff trained by Radzivilovsky, as well as sessions with members of the Weizmann Institute’s Mathematics Department. A second training camp will be held over the Pesach vacation, at which point 15 of the 30 will be invited to continue. At a third camp to be held in June, the most outstanding seven students will be chosen to make up the Israeli team to the international competition, to be held in Holland in July.
