Pioneered 'Strandbeest' walking machine

I posted a couple of weeks back wondering whether any Scouts could build one of Theo Jansen's walking creatures out of ropes and poles. As you can see in the video above, it has been done- be Shevet Hanasi in Tel Aviv.

Thanks to Dor Posner (who first introduced me to the large-scale brand of pioneering Israeli Scouts practice) for sending this in.

Please explain the text at the end of the video. At least the portion in roman letters (in English) does not seem in harmony with the spirit of scouting or at all appropriate for a scouting audience.
