Providing Momentum for Israeli schools
Tnufa, Hebrew for Momentum, is a promising ED non-profit.
Established in Late 2016 by a group of university students and IDF officers,
Tnufa now implements Research Matriculation In well over 50 schools in Israel.
Essentially, we help HS students to preform academic-level research mentored by stand-out faculty members and researches.
The Israeli ministry of education recognizes the projects as state exam.
Spreading the Word
From Explanation to Research
We are invited by schools to talk with their 11th graders about Research Matriculation.
In 2017, we held talks with more than 1200 students across 500 KM.
More than 50 schools from 25 municipalities contacted us for guidance.
300,000 Israelis learned about us from appearances on local and national media.
The sky are now the only limit
Tnufa recruited over 120 stand-out researchers as individual mentors
85% of them hold higher-degrees from leading univercities around the world.
They come from all fields of science: From Humanities to Physics and Medicine.
The Israeli National & Young Academy are our official partners.
Additionally, Tnufa runs 8 research support groups with after-school activities in Haifa and Jerusalem.
Making your Work Count
Partnership with Ministry of Education
Our research projects are marked by the Israeli Ministry of Education and recognized as official state exam.
The young researchers will receive admission bonuses for their projects from Israeli Universities.
The mentors are paid a modest sum (~350 USD) for their year-long support.
In our first year, we are transforming how 120 Israeli teens experience learning.
In 2018, we want to make it 500.
The estimated cost of enrolling a student to our program, for a full year of research, is 625 NIS, or 170 USD.
In-order for establishing 50 local research support groups, recruiting 400 more personal research mentors and producing more quality content for teachers and students, we need to recruit 85,000 USD this year in-total.
