Shulamith HS: Israel Institute of Technology Finalists

Students from all over the world entered the Technion’s (Israel Institute of Technology) competition to build a Pesach inspired Rube Goldberg machine. For the uninitiated, a Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption or device that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion, generally including a chain reaction.

In the weeks leading up to the challenge deadline, students tinkered away – working through lunch and long after school. They enjoyed brainstorming, building, testing, problem solving, rebuilding, and of course, working together as a team!

We are proud to announce that Shulamith High School was recognized as one of four finalists in the HS category.

Congratulations to the Shulamith STEM club members – Hana Adler, Hadassah Allman, Chevi Charlap, Ella Lax, and Avigail Sassoon- on their hard work and achievement! Credit to Ms. Vais for inspiring our girls to think creatively and challenge their limits.

We’d also like to congratulate the winners of the competition: Abraham Joshua Heschel High School (NYC) and the Weber School (Atlanta, Georgia) as well as our fellow finalists: Adelson Educational Campus (Las Vegas, Nevada), Lauder School of Prague (Prague, Czech Republic) and Gann Academy (Waltham, Massachusetts).
