On April 21, 2021, we were thrilled to virtually celebrate all of the participants of the 2020-21 Jerusalem Science Contest! Our six winners shared their keynote science presentations around this year’s theme of astronomy. While the awards presentation is typically an in-person event in Chicago, it was held online once again this year because of COVID-19. The response was tremendous; we thank the over 100 participants who joined us in the awards ceremony.
Emceed by Walder Science Director Rabbi Heschel Weiner, the evening featured remarks from Walder Science Co-Founder Mrs. Elizabeth Walder, along with remarks from Professor Chaim Sukenik, President of the Lev Academic Center, and reflections from Jerusalem Science Contest alumni.
The winners and keynote presentations included:
The Relationship between Supermassive Black Hole Mass and the Properties of the Host Galaxies
