The first # of the new year is on Yokneam, Israel! BTE-Yokneam is a partnership between Biosense Webster and Ort Israel launched in 2016. They recently held a “Peak Day” where students and volunteers bonded in outdoor activities and built up their social skills.
Students later visited Intel Haifa where they explored high-tech careers. They saw a demonstration of an autonomous car, learned what steps they need to take to enter the field, and were counseled on what it takes to become better learners.
BTE also worked with the students’ teachers, to train them in the power of positive reinforcement.
