Gravitational Wave Resources from Perimeter Institute

Greg Dick, Educational Outreach Manager, Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics

No longer a rumour, scientists at Caltech, MIT, VIRGO and the LIGO Scientific Collaboration have confirmed that gravitational waves have been detected! The discovery of these ripples in the fabric of spacetime could revolutionize our ability to understand the workings of the universe.

Perimeter Institute is offering you several ways to share this pivotal moment in scientific history with your students:

  • Share the excitement through classroom lessons plans and supplementary information specifically developed to help your students understand gravitational waves and the impact this discovery will have on their scientific future.

Today, a new window has been opened on our universe. We look forward to celebrating with you.
