Explore new and changing ideas about our universe alongside leading physicists. Perimeter Institute shares ideas with students, teachers, and like-minded people through programs and resources that communicate the power, joy, and mystery of science. Perimeter’s award-winning outreach team brings science to life and raises scientific literacy through classroom resources, public lectures, teacher workshops, an educator network, and a summer school where students interact with Perimeter researchers. People around the globe learn and are inspired by live interactions with researchers and online theoretical physics resources. Perimeter also hosts world-class musical and cultural events, believing that creativity inspires new possibilities.


Remember when you were little – how you’d spend hours exploring a stream or taking apart a flashlight? Perimeter researchers never stopped playing or asking questions. That’s what made them world leaders in physics. They know science is not a series of facts, but an ever-changing way of understanding our universe. Join in the discovery process: Perimeter’s Outreach programs, DVDs, online resources, contests, and exciting summer programs are designed to help you think about how our universe works. Perimeter offers students an unparalleled opportunity to learn, wonder and ask questions of leading researchers, and together develop new ways of understanding reality. Check out the unique resources and programs available free of charge.

Perimeter’s Outreach team is passionate about supporting science teachers so that together we can raise scientific literacy and help students learn that science is a powerful way of investigating the mysteries of our universe and an exciting process of building models to describe our world – models that change as new discoveries are made. Our support comes through classroom kits developed by Perimeter researchers and experienced teachers; professional development opportunities of workshops and special events; a national teacher network; online multimedia and in-person resources for students and teachers; and contests that provide opportunities for students to extend their knowledge of physics.

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.
