Israel's top institute for science and technology, the 300-acre Israeli Institute of Technology is highly fertile ground for cutting-edge research in such fields as engineering, medicine, architecture, and computer science. Founded in 1912, it is the country's oldest university, and is today a key to Israel's reputation as a "start-up nation." The Coler-California Visitors Center offers a virtual tour of the institute, and multimedia touch-screen videos. To get here, take Bus 31 from the Nof Hotel or the Dan Panorama Hotel.
