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.
Perimeter Institute is fulfilling the needs of teachers with a combination of special programs and resources created specifically for them. These programs and resources combine cutting-edge research with pedagogical techniques, and provide an opportunity for teachers to interact with top scientists from Perimeter.
This series of in-class educational resources is designed to help teachers explain a range of important physics topics. These resources are the product of extensive collaboration between international researchers, Perimeter Institute’s Outreach staff, and experienced teachers. Each kit has been designed with both the expert and novice teacher in mind and has been thoroughly tested in classrooms.
