Six 14-year-old yeshiva students from the city of Yerucham in southern Israel have won an international prize. The six took one of two runner-up awards in the First Lego League (FLL) Global Innovation competition.

Team members Eitam Aharon, Ilan Ben-Hamo, Naftali Deutsch, Tidhar Gavar, Dvir Cohen and Yedidya Froyndlich of Tzvia Yeshiva beat 250 other teams to become the first Israeli team to place in an FLL competition. They won a $5,000 grant to continue their research.

The team’s winning development was the FreezeStick, a device to help with food storage. The stick contains chemicals, and can be manually folded to set off a chemical reaction that renews the freezing of ice in a cooler, giving another 10 hours of cold storage.
