Collection Type Outreach
Here is your opportunity to experience, online, select content from Perimeter Institute's highly successful two-week International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP). While we could reach up to 100 "young physicists" per year with our onsite ISSYP camps, our Virtual ISSYP opens up this fantastic learning experience for all to enjoy. The Virtual ISSYP is intended for students, teachers and anyone interested in learning more about the wonders of modern physics and the excitement of research and discovery at the frontiers of knowledge.

Black Hole Science Cafes

Collection Number C08026
Collection Date -
Collection Type Outreach
The "Black Hole Science Cafes" are a rebirth of Perimeter Institute's highly successful "Black Hole Sessions," which provided an opportunity for members of the community interested in the exciting research happening at PI to engage in informal discussions with researchers and members of the PI Outreach Team. To learn about fascinating, cutting edge ideas about how our universe works - as revealed by theoretical physics - and ask questions of PI researchers. The Cafes will continue this tradition but will be made available to a worldwide audience through the PI website. The Cafes consist of a 20 minute introduction to a chosen topic by Dr. Richard Epp of the PI Outreach Team, followed by a 40 minute Question and Answer session, possibly featuring a PI researcher specializing in that topic.
