Bessie Lawrence alumni tea

Date: Wednesday, December 20, 2017

We were delighted to host a tea at Weizmann UK’s offices in September for alumni of the 2017 Dr. Bessie Lawrence International Summer Science Institute (ISSI).

Four participants were able to join us in London just before they headed off to begin their university careers in the sciences. It was a wonderful opportunity to hear the students recount their experiences at the Weizmann Institute over the summer.

The students had spent four weeks working alongside Weizmann Institute scientists on real research projects and also spent time off campus exploring Israel and meeting like-minded students from all over the world.

We were privileged to be joined by Anthony and Consuelo Brooke who are long-term supporters of the Weizmann Institute. In particular, they support British students to attend the ISSI by funding their scholarships.

You can read more about Anthony and Consuelo's support in our Impact Story about them. When the students returned from their month in Israel we invited them to recount their experiences as guest bloggers for Weizmann UK’s website. Read Helen, Yee Kwan, and Alex's Blogs.
