Yariv Bash, co-founder of SpaceIL, which sent Israel's first unmanned spacecraft, Beresheet, to the moon in 2019, shared his insight on teamwork and resilience with Middle School students this week. Friends of Access Israel (led by Ramaz alumnus Jamie Lassner) sponsored the live talk on Facebook. Mr. Bash is also CEO of the Israeli drone startup, Flytrek, which began as a supplier for drone manufacturers and hobbyists and has evolved into a delivery service. Since then, the company has begun small-scale test routes in the U.S., in North Carolina and North Dakota and is waiting for approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to be recognized as an unmanned air carrier.
