Interested in technology?
During your family trip to Israel, let us know if you are interested in technology, and we will make sure to include these into your visit:
- Weizmann Institute – With many pieces to explore, a special section in the Weizmann Institute which is great for kids is the Science Park! Full of interactive exhibits, it is like a scientific playground, an outdoor science museum. Explore solar power, water power, physics, and more. See where all of the innovation begins!
- Start up nation tour or scavenger hunt – If you’re more interested in things like Waze and Wix, ask us about the tours and scavenger hunts we can offer of up and coming start ups! Hear about some of the brilliant new ideas just starting now, and meet some of the innovators themselves. If you’re interested in a scavenger hunt, we can set you up with iPads, competing to get around different areas in the start up nation around Tel Aviv. If you want, you can even simulate beginning your own start up. Great for groups, families, couples, there is something for everyone.
- Technion University – while we don’t recommend visiting the university, it is a major hub for the technological advances throughout Israel and worldwide! It is home to the foundation for many medical advances, as well as other technological advances. It is the top educator for digital technology in the world.
