Safe Cracking Tournament, 2013

safe

Six students from Lauder-Reut High School and their mentoring teacher represented Romania in the final stage of the applied physics competition, organized by the prestigious Weizmann Science Institute in Israel.

The Romanian students’ project was one of 42 projects that advanced to the final stage, from a total of 90 projects submitted to the competition. For almost two decades, the Weizmann Science Institute has been organizing annual applied physics and science competitions for high school students from all over the world. The theme of the contest is cooperation in building a safe with a lock that can be opened by teammembers in less than 10 minutes, but that can also resist adversary teams’ attempts to break in for over 10 minutes. Students use simple materials and physics principles in order to plan and build this safe. The jury, which is made up of university professors and scientists, choose the winner based on the safe’s resistance,its originality, the efficiency of the utilized concepts, and visual aspect.

The six participating students from Lauder-Reut High School, grades IX through XI, were: Costin Stet, Oana Erbasu, Robin Scrieciu, Tomer Mozafi, Mihai Vrabie, and Andrei Florescu. Mentored by their Physics teacher, Mr.Teodor Florea, this team of students created a safe using geometrical optics and mechanical conservation (Gauss’ tunnel) principles. The design of the safe was original, inspired from themes in Star Trek.

The results obtained by the Lauder-Reut students in this international contest of applied sciences, organized by the Weizmann Institute in Israel, is a testament to their constant presence in international academic competitions. In fact, Lauder-Reut High School is the only high school that represents Romania in international contests organized by the Weizmann Science Institute, beginning with the 2011-2012 school year.

This year, our partnership with the Weizmann Institute has continued to include 20 middle school students, who are registered for math and sciences online clubs: Math by Mail and Science by Mail. Between April 13 and 19, these participating students will visit the Weizmann Institute as part of a themed science camp “Science Camp”. This is the third year when our students are able to take advantage of all the institute has to offer.

The warm welcome they received last year, the opportunity to meet prominent scientists (notably, Ada Yonath, Nobel Prize winner in crystallography), and the experiments in which they participated, which put their knowledge and imagination to the test - all these aspects brought massive interest from students this year. The online clubs have extended to include weekly chats about math and sciences, accompanied by daily “open-ended” problems that tickle the students’ curiosity and creativity.

Our students’ success (middle school and high school) is the result of their hard and constant work at the Lauder- Reut Educational Complex, mentored by wonderful people who have dedicated themselves to molding young minds.

Our partnership with the Weizmann Institute represents a bridge to new ways of learning.
