Ascola – Alumni Network
Ascola is a social and professional alumni network for Future Scientists Center graduates from programs including Odyssey, Alpha and Idea, as well as Israel’s Science Teams.
The alumni network is intended to serve as a shared, relevant and up-to-date resource, which facilitates voluntary activities and engages the alumni in light of their character, needs, and world view.
A variety of Alumni activities will take place throughout the graduates’ lives: from the moment they complete high school, throughout their military service, in the course of their academic studies, and as they develop their professional careers.
Ascola endeavors to maximize the personal and collective potential of the network members. It serves as a platform that enables individual members to identify the most relevant approach to embracing responsible leadership in the fields of science and technology in the State of Israel. This can include spearheading cutting-edge research and development for academia and industry, as well as science and technology education.
