Students from the electronics track of the AMIT Ofek Technological School won second place in a national competition held at Tel Aviv University under the auspices of the Ministry of Education and the Faculty of Engineering at Tel Aviv University. The competition was designed for students majoring in electronic engineering, computers, or control and energy systems.

Three students from the AMIT Ofek electricity track – Valery Feldman, David Zalmanovich and Babin Miriani – who are studying in the cadet program, won for their presentation of an innovative garbage sorting machine. The machine is intended for factories and is already being used in various locations.
Mr. Shlomi Achnin, Ministry of Education supervisor, emphasized the students’ high achievements in all the evaluation measures examined in the project: complexity, innovation, and applicability.
Miriam Shabtai, principal of AMIT Ofek, congratulated the students on their significant achievement: “I am proud of our students and congratulate their teacher Michael Brandsky on the achievement. Michael has led our students to success for the third consecutive year. We have been blessed with a unique team of teachers, who do not remain complacent for a moment, and think at all times how to grow and advance the students in our school.”
