Exciting Summer Science Camps for Students & Teachers at Canada's Perimeter Institute

Toronto, Canada (ots/PRNewswire) - - Young 'Einsteins' Can Attend Summer Science Camps in Canada Budding young physicists, age 16 and 17, can now apply to attend the 'International Summer School for Young Physicists' (ISSYP) at Perimeter Institute (PI) in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. International students from all around the world are invited to apply and be challenged by some of the most fascinating ideas about how the universe works - from the weird quantum world of atoms to black holes, warped spacetime and the expanding universe. Participation includes classes and small group mentoring sessions with the international scientists at Perimeter Institute. Lab tours, social events and other activities make this a life changing experience for highly motivated students who attend from across Canada and around the world. Science Teachers to Benefit from Workshops in Canada This popular summer science workshop for teachers welcomes international educators and is being offered in two sessions during the month of July 2008. Participants will enjoy the 'Einstein Plus' workshops with unique opportunities to explore cutting edge ideas in modern physics with the international scientists at Perimeter Institute, learn new and innovative teaching strategies to take back home and share with others, and enjoy social events with other dynamic educators from across Canada and around the world who share the same passion for physics. Details for all student and teacher workshops are available at http://www.perimeterinstitute.ca, including camp dates, application forms, deadlines, and information regarding expenses covered while in Canada. About Perimeter Institute Canada's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics is an independent, non-profit research centre where international scientists are clustering to push the limits of our understanding of physical laws by contemplating and calculating new ideas about the very essence of space, time, matter and information. The Institute, located in Waterloo, Ontario, also provides a wide array of educational outreach activities for students, teachers and members of the general public in order to share the joys of research and discovery. The Institute is an innovative and successful example of public-private partnership in science research and education through the passionate support of leading philanthropists, the support of the Government of Canada through Industry Canada, and by the Province of Ontario through the Ministry of Research and Innovation. ots Originaltext: Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics Im Internet recherchierbar: http://www.presseportal.ch Contact: For further information: Renée Ellis at rellis@perimeterinstitute.ca or by phone at +1-519-569-7600 ext. 5051
