The study of particle physics has a long history of uncovering compositeness - new substructures within particles that were at first believed to be fundamental. Are the current set of "fundamental" particles contained in the Standard Model hiding even smaller structures? In this talk, I will explore the physics of composite particles, the current state of experimental searches for compositeness, and distinctive signatures of undiscovered strongly-coupled composite particles such as composite dark matter.
