For Teachers

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.
