YESODOT – Chemistry Excellence Program
YESODOT (Foundations) is a Chemistry Excellence Program in the city of Beer Sheva, Israel, aiming to increase the number of students studying chemistry in high school. The program focuses on training chemistry teachers and also encouraging students to participate in the ‘Marie Curie’ program.
