The WEIZMANN UK Safe Cracking Physics Tournament

The WEIZMANN UK annual “safe-breaking” physics tournament is an opportunity for teams of Year 12 physicists from schools across the UK to create their own safe which has locking mechanisms based on the principles of physics. The teams then compete in a tournament where they crack into each other’s safes and those with the combined high scores win!

Teams who win the UK tournament receive a travel grant to enable them to travel to and spend 4 days exploring the Weizmann campus and taking part in the Shalheveth Freier International Tournament.

The Dr Bessie Lawrence International Summer Science Institute (ISSI)

The ISSI is an unparalleled opportunity for Year 13 students to spend a month at one of the world’s leading scientific institutions. This month long summer programme allows students to work on live research projects alongside top scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science, Israel.

As a participant of the ISSI, not only do you get to do real scientific research but you also get to explore Israel’s diverse ecosphere, amazing archaeology and experience different cultures – sharing the excitement with over 80 International students!

Thank you to the support of UK philanthropists, Weizmann UK are able to offer a number of full scholarship places each year for successful applicants.
