The Permanent Mission of Israel to the United Nations and the World Jewish Congress hosted a special event on Wednesday, March 2, 2016, in cooperation with Israel Aerospace Industries honoring young women aspiring to professions in engineering and technology.

Three female high-school students were brought in from Israel for the Women Engineers of Tomorrow event, together with their mentors, to present the innovations they have developed over recent months as part of the Women Leaders initiative, a unique project developed by the IAI to inspire young women to become involved in the aerospace industry.

"Presenting the Women Engineers of Tomorrow at the UN will show the world the true face of Israel and will help further the place of women in the sciences," said Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations in New York, Danny Danon. "These projects ensure a solid technological foundation not only for the future development of our country, but for the betterment of people around the world."

The innovations developed by the three students include a technological solution to forgetting children in locked vehicles (Doreen Cohen), tools to map and analyze traffic and transportation routes in real time (Gaya Nachshon) and a personal aircraft for everyday transportation needs (Omer Prives).
