WHAT PROBLEM WERE WE SOLVING?

WHAT PROBLEM WERE WE SOLVING?

Perimeter Institute's digital presence did not reflect the sophistication and innovation that the Institute is known for.

The website for these prestigious awards was dated, unreliable and poorly automated. This presented a real problem for an awards program rooted in the concept of innovation.

In 2018, Rain worked with Perimeter Institute to develop an award-winning interactive Scale of the Universe. Users can zoom from the smallest objects in the universe to the most massive, while learning about each along the way through photo, video and written content. Additional interactive applications found on the scale include science selfies, creating music with gravitational waves, and aligning telescopes all over the globe to visualize a black hole.
