Dream Building – Magic of the Holy Land | Engineering Skills for Global Impact

Science meets whimsy as children unleash their imaginations through exciting hands on construction workshops and engineering labs. Integrating Jewish heritage with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math), this 6 week course provides a life changing opportunity for children to develop creative building skills, deepen their relationship with the Land of Israel, and foster a desire to create global change.

The Land of Israel has always been a special place for Jews and Judaism. Today, its people transform individual imagination into collective reality through innovative science and technology. Combining teamwork and inquiry based learning, Dream Building encourages children to make this transformational magic part of their own lives. Projects include a cultural exchange, in which participants draw upon lessons by students at the Technion (one of the world’s leading engineering universities) and use the skills they learn to design toys for Sderot’s children in need.
