The Weizmann Institute was delighted to welcome a group of 40 students from the Imperial College Israeli Society, headed by president Daniel Voignac, at the end of March. The students from a range of departments at Imperial College were visiting as part of a five day long Tech Trip with a focus on Israel as a “start-up nation”. The visit to the Weizmann Institute formed a key part of the group’s itinerary alongside in-depth, high-tech workshops and visits to historical landmarks. The group's visit to Israel was made possible thanks to generous funding from Dangoor Education and the Alan Howard Foundation.
While on campus the students enjoyed a visit to the Levinson Visitors Centre, a guided tour of the Clore Garden of Science and a walking tour of the campus. The Imperial College students had the opportunity to meet with International Students from the Feinberg Graduate School to give them an understanding of possible graduate opportunities and fields of research at the Weizmann Institute.
