in memory of David Zohar
"One of us is a lone star,
but together we are a galaxy"
This year we have decided to join the Open Alliance- a forum in which teams around the world can share their work and progression during the build season. We joined the Open Alliance in order to help other teams by sharing our progress and insights throughout the build season and to better document our work in general.
We are team Galaxia 5987, a robotics team formed by high school students in the Reali Hebrew school of Haifa who believe in making the world a better place through STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), by turning our community into scientists, engineers, leaders, and innovators. We believe that no matter where they're from, or what their abilities are, anyone can be a great scientist, leader, and innovator.
On August 7, 2017, David Zohar, who was an Apache pilot in the air force, rescued an intern pilot who had flown with him during a system failure, but during the accident he also lost his life. David was a lot more than just a pilot, he was a vice president of Elbit Systems, a graduate of our school, a mentor of one of our FLL teams, and he had a huge part in integrating technology in our society. His values reflected the ones that Galaxia believes in.
