Waterloo, 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. 100 students from across Canada and around the world will 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.
Science Teachers to Benefit from Expanded Workshops in Canada
A popular summer camp for science teachers is growing to accommodate international participants. The "Einstein Plus Workshop on Modern Physics" at Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, is expanding to include 3 one-week sessions and accommodate up to 120 educators from across Canada and around the world. The intensive workshops focus on key areas of modern physics including quantum physics, special and general relativity and cosmology. Sessions with PI Outreach experts and leading scientists explore cutting-edge ideas as well as "how" to share scientific information and the joy of discovery with students via PI's special classroom-tested materials. Full workshop details are available at www.perimeterinstitute.ca and include camp dates, application form, April deadlines and information regarding how successful applicants will have expenses covered while in Canada.
Perimeter Institute 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 just outside Toronto, also provides a wide array of educational outreach activities for students, teachers and the general public across Canada and beyond in order to share the joys of creative inquiry, research, discovery and innovation.
