“Machsahva Tova is really fun, and I love how much thought and effort they invest in us.”

Maayan Shalom, 11 years old, studying with Machshava Tova from the second grade

Machashava Tova’s programs for children introduce participants to new and fascinating technologies in an environment which encourages curiosity and independent learning, combined with imparting learning skills.
The programs provide equal opportunities for children from Israel’s geo-social periphery who do not have the opportunity to learn or be introduced to basic computer skills and knowledge in advanced software programs.

Machshava Tova is a pedagogical leader in the education of STEM fields. We believe in cultivating a culture of innovation and supporting the next generation of inventors, who will help shape Israel’s future in the globalization and technological revolution of the 21st century.

The children’s program courses use a project-based learning (PBL) format, which makes the instructor a facilitator for the children’s thinking processes, focusing on their interests and natural curiosity. The program’s methodology develops research and analytical skills, interpersonal communication and public speaking, as well as sparks the children’s curiosity and imparts them with new knowledge. We believe that technology-entrepreneurial education at an early age will enable young students to better integrate these skills as adults.

Our goal is to advance vulnerable populations in Israeli society through technological skills, strengthening their self-confidence, developing confidence in their abilities, and helping them become interested in school-based learning.

Our variety of courses are tailored to different ages. Children are introduced to many technological tools and new learning possibilities, developing their interests as they create for themselves a successful future.
