These activities, besides being excellent learning opportunities, serve to build bridges between the diverse Galilee community by bringing them together and encouraging social and scientific interaction. These interactions and new contacts inject lots of new energy and enthusiasm, strengthen ties between different social and cultural groups and stimulate further initiatives and ideas.
Raising awareness of scientific issues among the public, and especially among children and youth, contributes to greater accessibility to science and scientific activity, promotes closer contacts between this activity and the public, and encourages involvement among the young people and students of the Galilee in the scientific challenges of the future. Migal operates a scientific education center which serves dozens of schools in the Galilee. Thousands of Galilee students take part in workshops, projects, educational trips and additional activities which are directed and supervised by researchers and other Migal staff members.
