Quantum for All Workshops and Camps
June was a busy month for leaders, teachers, and students involved in the Quantum for All workshops and camps. Teachers attended 4 days of workshops and then hosted 4 days of student camps at multiple locations across the country. Sites included Arlington and Katy TX, Baltimore MD, Provo UT, and Univ. of Wisconsin River Falls, WI. Next summer there will be more student camps in an effort to help more students have access to these unique opportunities. Stay tuned for more details.
There were several news articles published on the events. Links to articles:
