Nobel Laureate in physics Prof. David Gross, who serves head of the annual School of Physics at the Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, gave a lecture earlier this week to Jewish and Arab Students from across Israel. In his lecture, entitled ''My Life In Physics'', Prof. Gross spoke of the reasons that led him to physics and the steps he took on his way to becoming one of the leading researchers in the field. Attending the lecture were students from Mekif Beit Jan high school, Dekel Vilnai high school in Ma'ale Adumim and HEMDA Center for Science Education in Tel Aviv.

''He may have received a Nobel Prize but he started out just like us, a high school student looking for something interesting to do'', said one of the students.

Prof. Gross gave the students two pieces of advice, ''follow your hearts - do what you love, what excites you, what interests you, and aim high - set goals for yourselves that are worthy and challenging and don't be afraid to fail because that is how you learn and develop''.
