Excellence in Education – 2016

Al Nayzak is a Palestinian non-profit, non-partisan, and Jerusalemite initiative that looks for young talents in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

Their objective is to make scientific-thinking skills an inherent part of the lives of Palestinian people. In order to do this, it applies empirical tools to help individuals acquire thinking skills and relate them to genuine savoir-faire and technology.

In this way, they become capable of facing challenges in their journey to achieve excellence and develop their environment to build a modern Palestinian society.

In order to achieve its mission, Al Nayzak has adopted a series of chronically conducted programs that target various age groups to incubate talented people from an early age. These programs include: Talented Students Incubators for kids and adolescents from 10 to 14, Young Researchers for those from 14 to 17, Scientific and Technological Entrepreneurship (STEP) for school students from 14 to 17, Made in Palestine (MIP) for those who are 18 and above, “Tafkeer”, which integrates technology in education in schools, as well as a number of other complementary projects to convey a message of knowledge to all segments of the society.

In 2013, the organization inaugurated the first Science and Technology House in Palestine, where visitors enjoy hands on activities all dedicated to creating a culture of scientific thinking. The Science House receives around 15 thousand visitors annually, and it is the nuclear to establishing the National Science and Technology Museum in Palestine.
