General Public

Albert Einstein once said, “The important thing is not to stop questioning.” A vital part of the mission of the Perimeter Institute is to respond to and feed this natural human curiosity about the nature of our universe. Perimeter’s Outreach department is committed to sharing the power, joy and mystery of science with everyone, and to make theoretical physics and science research accessible and understandable to a general audience. Our public lecture series continues to be extraordinarily popular. We also offer inspiring interactive scientific, musical and cultural events, as well as online resources.
