The Kavli Foundation supports Astrophysics, Nanoscience, Neuroscience and Theoretical Physics by developing educational resources, which are available at no cost to teachers at accredited institutions, as well as graduate, undergraduate and high school students.

Through outreach and education programs, many Kavli Institutes have also created resources directed to teachers, students and the general public.
