100 Budding Young Einsteins Descend on Canada's Perimeter Institute
Waterloo, Canada (ots/PRNewswire)
100 of the brightest young minds from over 30 countries across the world (see list below), have earned positions at the prestigious International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP) at Canada's Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI).
The 16 and 17 year old students will be challenged by some of the most fascinating ideas in science involving how the universe works - from the weird quantum world of atoms, to black holes, warped spacetime and the expanding universe. They will participate with world-leading scientists, go on lab tours, enjoy social events and other activities.
The 50 successful international applicants who will take part in the week long science camps are from:
United States of America
Bronx, New York
Palo Alto, California
an Jose, California
Princeton, New Jersey
An additional 50 Canadian students will also be attending.
The two science camps are taking place on July 27 to August 8, and August 14 to 26. If your audience would enjoy knowing more about local youth who are taking part in these life changing science experiences, please contact Renée Ellis at email@example.com or +1-519-569-7600 ext. 5040.
About Perimeter Institute
Perimeter Institute is an independent, non-profit research centre where international scientists are clustering to push the limits of our understanding of physical laws (just like Albert Einstein did before them) by contemplating and calculating new ideas about the very essence of space, time, matter and information. The Institute also provides a wide array of educational outreach activities for students and teachers from across Canada and around the world in order to share the joys of research, discovery and innovation.
