Research & Teaching

The Belmonte Science Center was established as a university unit in 1990 in order to bridge the ever-widening gap between front-line scientific research and science education in high school. For many years, the Center has been a source of innovation and challenge in this field and has developed into a national and international model for the empowerment of science education by providing access to up-to-date teaching and research facilities for high school students. The Belmonte Science Center is operated by the Authority for Community and Youth of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and is a joint venture of the Hebrew University, the Municipality of Jerusalem and The Jerusalem Foundation.
