DRS Juniors Aaron Singer and Uri Ash have placed first and fifth, respectively, in the National Jerusalem Science Contest, a competitive and prestigious contest sponsored by the Jerusalem College of Technology.
Every year, students from yeshivas all over the country are given a theme, along with a textbook on the topic, and expected to prepare for the tests that are administered each week. The top five students with the highest average are each honored and awarded extraordin-ary prizes.
This year’s theme was astronomy and its connection to Judaism. Both Aaron and Uri dedicated countless hours to studying for the weekly tests, to ensure themselves a spot in the top five.
Uri was invited to Chicago to be honored at the award ceremony, where he will present on a topic of his choosing, in regards to astronomy and its connection to Judaism. Aside from this honor, Uri was also awarded an all-expense paid trip to Israel in May.
Aaron Singer tied for first place and will awarded the grand prize! Aaron will also be honored in Chicago, as well as receiving a four-year scholarship to the Jerusalem College of Technology, a large cash prize, and an all-expense paid trip to Israel in May.
DRS is gratified to have, not only one, but two students representing DRS as the winners of the Jerusalem Science Contest.
