The 10-day program started on December 12, bringing 60 teens — 30 from Israel, 30 international students — ages 16 to 18 together for a series of tours, events, meetings across Israel and a hackathon. Over the course of the program, the teens were hosted by the City of Haifa and traveled to a number of cities and spots such as Jerusalem, Masada, the Dead Sea and Tel Aviv, met with representatives of various Israeli startups, and went on a tour of high-tech companies, the Technion and Rambam Medical Center in the city. The participants will continue to be involved in the program through a “virtual technological incubator,” which according to the program’s website, will “serve as the main tool for the ongoing relationship.”
