MetroWest visits ORT Odessa

A robotics workshop was one of the highlights of a great visit to ORT Odessa by our friends in the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest New Jersey.

As Anna Michurina, the Director of the ORT Odessa Centre and senior expert at ORTs research and design department said, It was a lot of fun. Some of our English-speaking students helped our guests to build their own programmable robots. It was an opportunity for them to speak to each other and create something together.

The workshop was part of a thorough tour of the school, which has 410 students from primary right up up to matriculation.

Other highlights included taking part in a Hebrew class and seeing a robotics competition between the ORT school and the Tikva religious school, which has established quality technology-related classes with the help of ORT and MetroWest.

It was Holocaust Memorial Day so we had a ceremony in which students sang songs, recited poetry and performed drama. Some of our guests were moved to tears, said Ms Michurina.
