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.

GoPhysics! Workshops

GoPhysics! Gravity & Black Holes is a free workshop for Grade 11/12 students that includes independent preparation, live online sessions with physicists, and lots of time for questions. The next dates are February 26 and March 14/15. Students can view the full details and complete a short application here – applications will remain open until the workshops are full.

Luke Santi Memorial Award – $1000 Award & Visit to Perimeter

Graduating high school students who will be pursuing physics at a Canadian university in Fall 2022 can apply for this memorial award. Each year, one student will receive a $1000 award and a ‘day as a physicist’ in Perimeter Institute’s award-winning research environment (travel costs are covered; visit will be scheduled after the pandemic). Applications close May 31.

International Summer School for Young Physicists (ISSYP)

ISSYP is a challenging two-week online program for high school students with a keen interest in theoretical physics who intend to pursue physics at university. Students learn about cutting-edge topics and make connections with like-minded students around the world – many students note this connection to ‘people like me’ as the highlight of the program for them! There is no application fee and financial assistance for the program fee of $250 is available. Applications close March 31.


The BCC is currently accepting submissions for the BCC Zine. The BCC Zine is an annual virtual publication that highlights the artistic contributions of BIPOC/QTPOC youth between the ages of 15 and 29. It will consist of a variety of diverse art forms including, but not limited to, visual art (any medium), music (composition or a performance- if you will perform a piece, it must be written by a BIPOC individual), sculpture, photography, mini film series, or a written work (prose or poetry). Applications for this zine will be open until January 31, 2022 at 11:59pm EST.

How to Write a Strong Nomination Application 




REGINA: The Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS), responds to the recent discovery of 751 unmarked grave at the site of the former Marieval Indian Residential School on Cowessess First Nation with grief and anger. This is a horrific and sad reminder of the devasting impact of the prisons for Indigenous children we know as residential schools. We all care about children, yet many of us can only imagine the depth of injustice, pain and intergenerational trauma caused by colonialism, of having kids forcibly taken away and never returned home to the love and warmth of a family, culture, and community.

These discoveries reveal the truths known consistently in Indigenous communities for generations. They confirm the stories shared with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission among other sources. Many survivors, family, and community members are distressed and retraumatized. We are grateful for the courage and perseverance that First Nations and Métis leaders, residential school survivors and descendants demonstrate. Lorna Standingready, a residential school survivor has shared her experiences many times with the community. See link

Collectively, we can no longer turn a blind eye to the destruction in the name of “civilization”. In order to create communities based on healthy, respectful, equitable relationships, we must stand strong together and demand substantive, systemic changes. The initiative on Cowessess First Nation to create culturally appropriate, family-centred ways to protect children is one example. Governments at all levels, faith communities, businesses, and community organizations can take responsibility to examine their structures, policies, processes, and programs through an anti-racism lens, and in conversation with those impacted, in order to affect lasting change.

As we grieve these lost young lives, may we find strength and motivation in learning, sharing, and connecting. We can each intentionally take action on our journey of decolonization and anti-racism. Individuals can offer support and solidarity with Indigenous organizations, friends, family, colleagues, schoolmates, and neighbours. We encourage Saskatchewan residents to attend, support, and promote Indigenous heritage learning opportunities; for those in Regina, Buffalo People Arts Institute is offering Buffalo Day on July 1, at Buffalo Meadows Park. #EveryChildMatters
