TowerJazz Community Contribution/Social Responsibility
TowerJazz supports a wide range of health, education, social and community activities that affect and involve its employees and the community’s well-being. In the past few months, these activities included:
FIRST LEGO LEAGUE
TowerJazz sponsors teams in both Israel and the US; guided by adult coaches, FIRST LEGO LEAGUE challenges kids to think like scientists and engineers. The teams research a real-world problem such as food safety, recycling, energy, etc., and are challenged to develop a solution. They also build, test, and program an autonomous robot using LEGO: MINDSTORMS® technology to solve a set of missions in the Robot Game. FIRST LEGO LEAGUE includes over 30,000 teams from over 85 countries around the world.
The TowerJazz sponsored team in Israel won overall third place at the FIRST LEGO LEAGUE national championship in Tel-Aviv, Israel. This achievement advanced the team to the Open European Championship held in May in Denmark. Being one of 120 teams from all over the world, the team did very well, demonstrating a high level of performance with multiple ”Exemplary” scores in all categories.
The team in the US (Texas) did well in the local qualifier tournament, winning first place in core value and third place overall. The team is comprised of 10-year olds (4th graders), who have much potential to grow with the support from TowerJazz and other sponsors
“Congratulations to all these enterprising young kids!
Mountain to Valley Relay Race (M2V)
Once again, our employees participated in the ”Mountain to Valley Relay Race” from the upper Galilee Mountains to the Yzra’el Valley, where the TowerJazz facility is located in Israel. The race combines personal athletic experience and group collaboration with teams running in open spaces along 215 Kilometers (in about 20-4 hours). Three teams represented TowerJazz and included both men and women. We congratulate our employees who once more demonstrated their strength, devotion and persistence!
Good Deeds Day
Good Deeds Day is an international celebration of DOING GOOD! This year on April 2nd, TowerJazz participated in ”Good Deeds Day” activities around the world. Employees collaborated with environmental organizations and retirement institutions, renovated buildings, prepared food packages for families in need and participated in blood drives.
English and Math Classes Volunteering
This is the fourth year TowerJazz employees have participated in an English learning project, giving the youth in Israel an opportunity to learn English, improve their communication skills, and widen their English vocabulary to help open their minds to the opportunities their futures can offer. This year, TowerJazz entered into a new project teaching Math at a high school in Migdal Haemek, Israel.
