SNOLAB hosts and participates in special events throughout the year, including local community initiatives in Sudbury and international events within the astroparticle physics community. Working with our institutional partners, SNOLAB also hosts and supports a variety of summer schools for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students.

TRISEP is an international graduate level summer school organized jointly by the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, SNOLAB, Canada’s deep underground physics lab, and TRIUMF, Canada’s particle accelerator centre. This interactive school features lectures by leading experts in the field of particle physics and is designed with ample time for group work, problem solving, and discussions with the speakers.

The Canadian Astroparticle Physics Summer School (CAPSS) is an intensive week-long undergraduate school that will introduce students to the current topics in the field of astroparticle physics. It is hosted McDonald Institute, Queen’s University and SNOLAB. 

ISSYP is an exciting and challenging two-week online program for Canadian and international high school students with a keen interest in theoretical physics who intend to pursue physics at the university level. Operated by Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics, ISSYP is now in its 19th year and includes over 850 alumni in 60 countries. 

Dark Matter Day

Dark Matter Day is a day of global outreach to explore the intrigue and inquiry into the true nature of dark matter. This annual celebration is hosted by the  Interactions Collaboration, an international community of particle physics communication specialists.
