The Ilan Ramon Centre

BGU run a number of community outreach programmes to help aid development to the region. One such programme is the Ilan Ramon Youth Physics Centre.

The Ilan Ramon Centre, named to preserve the memory of the Israeli astronaut has become a leader in the field of scientific education for gifted middle and high school students.

The Centre was featured in The President's Report 2011 and you can read more about it here.

 

 

The high school students come to BGU for all sorts of educational programs and thanks to the Ilan Ramon Centre have access to state-of-the-art laboratories that otherwise would be inaccessible to high school students in the south. 

 

This initiative is also the focus of National Praise as seen in this article written in the Jerusalem Post in August 2011.
