Meet A Scientist – Video Interviews

New online video resource for students is now available online.

What makes a scientist tick? How did they get started? What advice do they offer today’s students?

The new “Meet a Scientist ” online video resource shares answers from luminaries throughout the international research community, including Nobel Prize Laureates Sir Anthony Leggett and Frank Wilczek, and many other eminent scientists. This latest web offering from Perimeter Institute’s Outreach team offers short, engaging interviews with accomplished physicists, who explain their lifelong interest in science – from high-school days to the present – and provide insights for young students who may wish to pursue careers of their own in theoretical physics or other areas of science. 

In addition to enjoying the many inspirational observations, you can link to more detailed information from past  PI Public Lectures and descriptions of related research areas at Perimeter Institute. Watch for many more interviews in the fall of 2009 and beyond!
