Ethan Swagel (Grade 11) receives Madaras SciTech Scholarship


Congratulations to Ethan Swagel (Grade 11) on his receipt of the Madaras SciTech Scholarship to conduct high-level scientific research this summer at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. הטכניון! This is the fifth consecutive year that a CESJDS student(s) has won this honor.

Providing what is often the first opportunity to work in a research lab, SciTech allows high schoolers to work side-by-side with university scientists on projects ranging from aerospace engineering to cancer treatments. At the close of the program, the students demonstrate their research findings with a poster presentation before a professional plenary assembly.

"Even though I'm very interested in science, I've never had the chance to work in a lab or even outside of the classroom," said Ethan. "SciTech offers me the chance to work in a lab and to experience Haifa and Israel. I get to spend three weeks immersed in a subject and a country I love."
