#B2ESiteSpotlight on Yokneam, Israel

 

 

 

 

 

The first #B2ESiteSpotlight 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.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Beyond these activities, Biosense Webster mentors have held open study hours to help students improve their academic performance! Here are a few who have taken them up on it.
