Physics in Canada Science Outreach Issue

We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology. (Carl Sagan)

For the last year and a half, my colleague from Simon Fraser University, Dr. Sarah Johnson, and I have been collaborating as co-editors of a special issue of Physics in Canada, dedicated to physics outreach in Canada. The goal of this issue is to share science outreach ideas and to see what is happening across our country so we can learn from each other and hopefully collaborate. As both of us have been actively engaged with science outreach for more than two decades. we realize that we cannot keep reinventing the wheel of science outreach. There is too much to be done to rediscovering it again and again. As a result we collected 13 exciting papers dedicated to science outreach in Canada. This special issue will come out in November 2017.

The preliminary version of the foreword to the issue can be found here:
