מחקר על הפוטנציאל למצוינות בלימודי מתמטיקה ופיזיקה במערכת החינוך החרדית

Excellence in Mathematics in the Ultra-Orthodox Community

This is an exploratory study, solicited by the Trump Foundation in Israel, aimed at the assessment of the potential for excellence in Math and Physics studies within the current Haredi Educational System. The study illuminates some of the recent transformations occurring in this regard, both within the Yeshivot of the Haredi men, as well among the Haredi women's education system, predominantly the Beit-Ya'akov schools. The report concludes by forecasting, cautiously, an imminent trend change towards a legitimate growing of excellence in mathematics among various sections in the Haredi society.

Where is Chemistry Education Heading?

More than a decade ago, working groups at the Neaman Institute explored the future of the chemical industry in Israel. One of the four working groups focused on the question of education in chemistry. Under the leadership of Prof. Judy Dori, this group investigated the state of chemistry teaching in Israel and the future of chemistry education in Israel by interviewing and administering questionnaires to chemists, chemical engineers, academics, and teachers.
מיפוי המחקר והפיתוח החקלאי בישראל

Mapping Agriculture R&D in Israel

The Science and Innovation Department of the British Council (through the British Embassy in Israel) has partnered with the Samuel Neaman Institute (SNI) in a joint project, the objective of which is to identify the relevant subjects in the area of Agricultural Science that have high synergy and high potential for cooperation between the United Kingdom and Israeli scientists.
Higher Education Forum

Higher Education Forum

The Samuel Neaman Institute, in collaboration with "Bashaar - Academic Community for Israeli Society", organizes the higher education forum. The higher education forum was established following an international conference held in December 2004 at the Neaman Institute on the subject of "Transition to Mass Higher Education Systems." The goal of the forum is to hold discussions on issues that concern the higher education system in Israel and to hold an open dialogue between the universities, colleges, Israel Council for Higher Education, Planning and Budgeting Committee and other governmental and public organizations.

Non-Stop Mathematics

Non-Stop Mathematics

Mathematics curricula in most countries, including Israel, do not reflect the ongoing work and the new results being accumulated in mathematics. Many graduates of the education system develop a misconception that mathematics is a closed and stagnant area, where all the answers are known and very little, if anything, is left to stimulate their curiosity and desire to invest in creating new results. In an attempt to deal with the problem, the project team developed a set of Mathematics News Snapshots (abb. MNSs) in the format of short PowerPoint presentations each focusing on a single breakthrough in the field of mathematics, taking into account the limited background of high school level students.
The Development of Research Universities in Israel

The Development of Research Universities in Israel

the project focused on how diversity is expressed in the national Informatics Olympiad. There are numerous international, as well as national, science Olympiads that serve as an opportunity for developing and demonstrating intellectual and scientific skills; as such, they attract highly talented and gifted students. Accordingly, a relevant question to be asked is: What does this fact reflect with respect to the expression of diversity in this context? In this study we aim at examining this question by focusing on how diversity is expressed in the Israeli national Informatics Olympiad.
