Perimeter Institute offers several free opportunities for high school students interested in science and physics.

Inspiring Future Women in Science: Live Online Q&A

We know students have questions about careers in science and on Thursday, February 10 we’ll help them get answers. Panelists include an astronomer, a chemical engineer, a medical student, and a construction and facility management professional. The session is perfect for high school students who are interested in science and want to learn more about different fields. Although this event is part of our International Day of Women and Girls in Science activities, high school students of all genders are welcome to register to attend.
