Beit Yehuda school rocket launch

A year ago a grant was given to Beit Yehuda High School for study in physics.
The principal told me that there are two groups in their dormitory –French & Israeli – each studying physics according to their respective syllabus. I suggested that both groups learn together, choosing a topic not taught in either curriculum. Hence, rocket physics was selected. Since this high school is on the Gaza border, rocket study was very relevant.

The language gap was solved by teaching the program in English.

Last month 11 rockets were launched at the Weitzman Institute, because it cannot be done so close to the border. Teachers, pupils and parents were present at the launch which was appraised as highly successful. One of the proposals this year is a continuation of this project.
