YOFHS STEM Trip to Israel: Day 1

It's been an exhausting day and a half, but we made it! We are at the Tal Hotel in Tel Aviv, where we just completed our first Entrepreneurial Workshop with Steve Gray. Steve is a former VC for Intel in Israel, where his job was to review start-ups for Intel.  He spoke to the students about the powerful role that Israel plays in the world of technology and start-ups.  It's all about Chutzpah, risk taking and brains.  In spite of the long day, and jet-lag, we were riveted by Steve's ideas and look forward to a week of exploring and learning how to become a part of the entrepreneurial world.

Tomorrow we will take part in an Out-Door Training program in order to understand the Army's role in team building and leadership training. We continue to PrimeSense - developers of Kinekt for X-Box and round off our travels with a high tech visit to the Olympic Experience.

Stay tuned for other updates of our amazing trip!
