Young 'Einsteins' Can Attend Summer Science Camps in Canada
TORONTO, Feb. 1 /CNW/ - Budding young physicists, age 16 and 17, can now
apply to attend the 'International Summer School for Young Physicists' (ISSYP)
at Canada's Perimeter Institute (PI) in Waterloo, Ontario.
Senior high school students from across the country 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 from across Canada and around the
Science Teachers to Benefit from Workshops in Canada
This popular summer science workshop for teachers from across Canada and
beyond is being offered in two sessions during the month of July 2008.
Participants 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 the country and around the world who share the same
passion for physics.
Details for all student and teacher workshops are available at
www.perimeterinstitute.ca, including camp dates, application forms, deadlines,
and information regarding expenses covered 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.
