For Students

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. Join in the discovery process through Perimeter’s free outreach programs, online resources, contests, and exciting summer programs designed to help you think about how our universe works. 


Perimeter Institute student programs include a unique physics summer school program for senior high school students and a $1,000 annual award presented to a Canadian student who demonstrates high academic performance, interest in science, extra-curricular activities, and volunteering – and has begun post-secondary education in physical sciences at a Canadian university. | more |
