Programs

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.
