“In a political world that is encouraging fearing and rejecting the different, the Science Bridge will be the compass for removing barriers. As an Arab in Israel I do believe that by science we can bridge people together through the passion for knowledge. Science gives equal opportunities regardless to political opinions and conflicts.”
