Last night, the annual ליל המדענים (scientists’ night) was held at BIU. At this event, kids (and their families) come to get a taste of various types of scientific research at BIU, in a very hands-on, inviting manner.
As in past years, some of the Safi team presented our work as well (and a big thanks to Dina, Natalie and Sivan [and Amit, behind the scenes]), and needless to say, were VERY popular. In addition to displaying and explaining about some archaeological finds (real and replicas), the hands-on activity was to create ancient Hebrew seals. This was so popular, that all the materials that had been prepared (to make 300 seals) were used up before the event was finished!
Here are some pictures of the Safi corner at the event:
