For Teachers

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. Perimeter’s Outreach team is passionate about supporting science teachers so that, together, we can raise scientific literacy. Perimeter Outreach offers classroom kits developed by PI researchers and experienced teachers; professional development opportunities; 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.
