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

forms, deadlines, and information regarding expenses covered while in
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.
