The PIR Live Event program engages classrooms across Canada in dynamic online webinars about a range of topics, introducing students to Canadian researchers, professionals, and facilities. Each PIR Live Event webinar features a Q&A with a different guest expert and/or a virtual tour of a research facility — and it’s FREE to participate!
Classrooms across Canada can join the discussion by submitting their questions during the webinar and getting answers in real time from our guest expert. If you can’t participate at the scheduled time for a PIR Live Event, you can submit your questions in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org and watch the video recording afterward on the Partners In Research YouTube channel with your class to hear the answers!
PIR Live Events are interactive, dynamic, and a great way to bring virtual experts and other classrooms into your classroom.
