On April 25th a bus load of ESRA members travelled to the Weizmann Institute to visit the Gifted Children of Yavne.  We visited the third grade pupils learning a new computer langauge which allowed the children to solve thinking games.  The fourth and fifth grades were having a biology lesson and discovering the effects of certain liquids on changing colors.

It was delightful to see the participation of the children – see raised hands.  Here are the future scientists of our country.

Esra continues to support this project in Yavne, bringing 22 gifted children to special learning classes at the Institute once a week.
