Student Projects

The educational activity in Shamir Research Institute includes substantial participation in the regional educational initiative to enhance the science studies of children in the periphery. We established a highly controlled greenhouse that is aimed for conducting scientific projects of researches and research projects for students and school pupils. Our meta topics involve physiology and botanical studies on introducing local native plants into community and school gardens. Many students, school pupils and teachers from all sectors (Jewish, Moslems, Christians, Druze, and Circassian) participate in our activities every year. We are developing partnerships and collaborations with the lecturers and students from Ohalo college for teacher cadets in our vicinity, emphasizing biological and ecological questions on plant interaction with biotic and abiotic factors. 

The future vision is to be the center for agriculture and biological studies and activities for high school students and teachers in our region.
