World ORT is the world’s largest Jewish education and vocational training non-governmental organisation.

Started in 1880, World ORT is today operational in 37 countries and helps around 300 000 students around the world. Specialised in technology, our mission is to provide communities wherever they are, with the skills and knowledge necessary to cope with the complexities and uncertainties of their environment.

World ORT students are going places

We teach boys and girls to master science and technology, to love their community and to contribute to society. With 300,000 Jewish – and non-Jewish – students in five continents, we’re building a better world through education.

With 700 participants from more than 50 schools, this year’s Robotics CIM ORT 2018 Tournament, which opened today at Colegio Israelita de México ORT, is substantially bigger than last year’s inaugural competition. It’s also more difficult.

“Last year, being the first was like a test to see what the standard was out there,” said CIM ORT Coordinator of Educational Technological Innovation Yair Xolalpa. “But the goal of this competition is to increase technological knowledge among our youth so we are raising the standards to make it more challenging.”

Most of the teams at CIM ORT are from Mexico but there’s also one from Colombia. ORT schools in Russia, Estonia, Lithuania, Moldova are competing online together with schools from Ecuador and Colombia.

Opening the competition, CIM ORT Principal Avi Meir placed the event front and centre in the school’s mission.

“We want to make our students leaders of tomorrow in a scientific and technological world through an innovative programme of robotics, science, technology and maths; programmes which combine creativity and skills for life, including self-confidence,” he said.

There are 14 categories offering a variety of challenges for this year’s competitors – from designing and building a fighting robot in Lego Sumo, to making one that can find and move objects, a drone race, and designing, building and programming a prototype to meet a surprise set of specifications within 12 hours.

“In 1951, when Isaac Asimov published his novel Foundation he never imagined that 67 years later that the three laws of robotics that he’d conceived would be debated, not in a scientific academy but in a fight dome,” Mr Xolalpa said.

The competition was a modern incarnation of the Olympic Games – but the aims went beyond the glory, honour and olive wreaths due the winners, Mr Xolalpa continued, to generate “fraternal and human feelings” between participants.With 700 participants from more than 50 schools, this year’s Robotics CIM ORT 2018 Tournament, which opened today at Colegio Israelita de México ORT, is substantially bigger than last year’s inaugural competition.

Is the summer school what you expected it would be ?

Had you ever met so many nationalities at the same time before? What's the biggest cultural challenge?

Lovely to see you guys working together!

Hello

Hello from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. I was a professor of Biotechnology Program at ORT-Rio. Congratulations

I have a question for any student: what is your experiment control? How and why did you decide that this set up would work as a control?

I have a son doing research in another part of Panama with graduate students from the University of Illinois and the local area.

Wonderful! I’m so happy to watch our youngest scientist!!! Yes, you are. Because you answer the first call: curiosity. And you did pursuit the important question: why? The rest of the story is called Science.

yes! Papaya!!!

Thanks very much to everyone involved!

tell us about the project you are working on - what is the most exciting part about doing it in the rainforest?

Thank you for sharing this amazing experience!

Have you ever applied what you already know in theory like you are doing now?

Arielle Shturman I’m sure you have a great future ahead I’m really proud

Hola Daniel! Nice to hear from you

"From the moment we arrived at the Soberania National Park we’ve been studying an amazing amount of species of plants and animals – things like you’d never normally have the opportunity to see. Even by looking through the window of our lodge you can see the incredible variety of Panamanian diversity… agoutis, titi monkeys, sloths, and hummingbirds – all in their natural habitat."
