This classroom resource is designed to help science teachers introduce and guide students through topics in modern physics. The lessons, known as Perimeter Explorations, are viewable online and are the product of collaborations between Perimeter Institute's international researchers, outreach staff, and experienced educators. The current topics include "The Mystery of Dark Matter" and "The Challenges of Quantum Reality". The teaching kit includes a 25 minute video, teacher notes, student worksheets, and supplemental materials. Much of the content is available for free download.
