On April 20, Jacqueline Gorin, Grade 5, Rotem Miara, Grade 8, and Shana Cohen, Grade 11, of Scheck Hillel Community School, were honored at the Independent Schools of South Florida (ISSF) Star Awards Ceremony, which annually recognizes outstanding students.

ISSF describes Star Award recipients as those who set an example for others to follow, whether in the home, school or community. The students excel in areas like: academics, community service, citizenship, fine art, athletics, student activities, perseverance, effort, dedication, commitment to positive goals, improvement in performance, and attitude.

ISSF serves as an information network, bringing important speakers and programs to its member schools. ISSF provides continuing education and certification programs for educators through its annual seminars and continuing education courses. Mazal tov!

Scheck Hillel Community School continued to make history April 18 in what’s proving to be a banner 2015-16 school year when it placed first in the TechnionJewish Day School Challenge, created by RAVSAK and Technion-Israel Institute of Technology. The students’ mission was to build a Rube Goldberg machine in the spirit of Pesach and inspired by the intricate 2015 Technion Rube Goldberg machine. A Rube Goldberg machine is a contraption or device that is deliberately over-engineered to perform a simple task in a complicated fashion, generally including a chain reaction. 

More than 600 students from 41 Jewish day schools in Europe, North America, Australia, and Africa participated in the Challenge. Scheck Hillel students Malvina DimitriZachary LemmerSadie Slomovitz andHannah Stern, all Grade 6 of the Samuel and Henrietta Scheck Middle School, were led by science teacher Dr. Athena Hadjixenofontos and technology teacher Mr. Charles Mahoney.

“The Technion Jewish Day School Challenge is an excellent representation of Scheck Hillel Community School’s mission, vision and values,” said Dr. Ezra Levy, Scheck Hillel’s Head of School. “It reinforces 21stcentury day school education as the source of promise for a bright Jewish future, empowering our rising generation with developed skills, cultivated talents and fueled passion for science, technology, engineering and math, guided by Jewish identity and values that will endure.”

“In partnership with Technion—Israel Institute of Technology, we were able to create an amazing new opportunity for students to blend their commitments to Jewish learning with the sciences, foster a connection to post-secondary education, and prompt them to apply their knowledge of Pesach traditions in a completely innovative way,” said Dr. Marc N. Kramer, RAVSAK’s Co-Executive Director.

Students followed a rigorous rubric, which called for the machines to ultimately reveal a Seder plate. In the weeks leading up to the Challenge deadline, students tinkered away, and got insider tips from world-renowned Technion Mechanical Engineering Professor Alon Wolf and other Technion faculty. The Challenge for these student volunteers was a perfect fit within Scheck Hillel's STEM curriculum.

"I am delighted to see the Technion’s role in inspiring all of the participants to do such great work,” said Prof. Yoram Halevi, Dean of the Technion Faculty of Mechanical Engineering. “You have inspired us, as well, and we hope to see you grow and succeed in your science paths.”  

“Our students thoroughly enjoyed putting together their Rube Goldberg machine, simultaneously building the machine itself, connecting with their teammates, and enriching their understanding of Pesach,” Dr. Levysaid. 

“The Technion is thrilled to have launched this new initiative together with RAVSAK,” said Technion President Professor Peretz Lavie. “In an ever-changing world we need to find new and relevant ways to connect younger generations of the Jewish people with Israel. What better way to do so than a thought-provoking, fun competition that has a strong STEM education focus? Congratulations to all who participated. I hope to see you all at the Technion – as students – in a few years,” he concluded. 

Videos of the winning Technion Challenge machines can be viewed on the Technion YouTube channel. #TechnionChallenge
