New Zealand students to participate in World Science Conference – Israel

We are delighted to announce that five of New Zealand’s brightest science students are participating in the WSCI-2015 World Science Conference – Israel, to be held on August 16-20 in Jerusalem: a new scientific undertaking, which will bring together leading scientific leaders of the present with promising young scientists of the future.

The five year 13 students from respectively Hamilton, Pukekohe, Wellington, Onehunga, Hamilton and New Plymouth have been selected by the Royal Society of New Zealand.

An unprecedented festival of international science:
15 Nobel laureates and 400 young science geniuses from all over the world will be in Israel to participate in the biggest scientific conference of its kind.

Israel will host in Jerusalem over 400 young science masterminds – the future generation of world scientists – from over 70 countries worldwide and 15 Nobel laureates, for the first World Science Conference – Israel (WSCI-2015).

Initiated by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Israel in collaboration with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Nobel Laureate Prof. Roger Kornberg, and the Ministry of Science & Technology, the WSCI will bring young students from all around the world for an intensive one-week program. During the conference, the participants will have a chance to attend lectures, to interact, and to be inspired by Nobel Laureates of various fields, Wolf Prize & Fields Medal winners, as well as other leading scientists from around the world.

The students will also experience a unique opportunity to meet and get to know some 400 bright students from five continents all around the globe, among them, probably included some of the next generation leading scientists.
