Since 2002 Perimeter Institute has been recording seminars, conference talks, and public outreach events using video cameras installed in our lecture theatres. Perimeter now has 7 formal presentation spaces for its many scientific conferences, seminars, workshops and educational outreach activities, all with advanced audio-visual technical capabilities. Recordings of events in these areas are all available On-Demand from this Video Library and on Perimeter Institute Recorded Seminar Archive (PIRSA).
PIRSA is a permanent, free, searchable, and citable archive of recorded seminars from relevant bodies in physics. This resource has been partially modelled after Cornell University's arXiv.org.
A no-holds-barred examination of the end-goals of education. Higher education establishments and changing industry requirements (especially new industries) are moving the goalposts for the outcomes of K-12 education. Is the goal to create people who will do good and make the world a better place?
A discussion between students who dared to strive for better and hacked their education to get there. They talk about their motivations, experiences, the reaction of those around them and the difference it has (or perhaps hasn’t) made to their lives.
This multidisciplinary panel will draw from the themes explored in the Benchmark videos to explore the opportunities and challenges that lay ahead when we envision high school education in 2030. Do we reform, redesign or reinvent? What are the critical questions that we need to be asking?
