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.

Virtual Researcher On Call (VROC) is an educational program that connects K-12 classrooms with Canadian subject matter experts for customized, interactive video calls. The best part? VROC is available to teachers across Canada at no cost.
Over 350 Canadian researcher and professional profiles are listed in our online directory, ExpertBook. Educators can search this directory using key word(s) and contact these subject matter experts directly to request one or more video calls. VROC connections can take place in English or French.
BIG NEWS!!! VROC has recently expanded to include ALL SUBJECT AREAS. If you don’t find an appropriate subject matter expert for your desired topic in our directory, please email the details to email@example.com and we will be happy to seek an appropriate expert on your behalf!
