Yep, we are in the 2nd quantum revolution. Did you miss the first one? The first quantum revolution occurred nearly a century ago!! It led to the 20th-century technological revolution, which was based on the transistor, laser, and atomic clock which gave us computers, optical fiber communication, and the global positioning system. Even things we consider “life changing” […]
At a press conference on March 26, 2021, Biden said, “The future lies in who can, in fact, own the future as it relates to technology, quantum computing, a whole range of things, including in medical fields,” adding that he would focus on investing in “industries of the future.” A new bill The Endless Frontier […]
We are extremely excited to announce that the ITEST project, Preparing Secondary Teachers and Students for Quantum Information Science has been approved by the National Science Foundation. Over the course of 3 years the project will focus on preparing HS teachers to teach STEM through the lens of quantum mechanics. The project will include online […]
There have been some great workshops, sessions, and discussion over the past few weeks regarding the importance of quantum in our current and future environment. The reasons are numerous as to why we need to teach students K-12 about quantum, but do they all need to be quantum experts? No, but they do need to […]
We are partnering with Texas Section AAPT by providing 2 workshops (1.5 hrs each) on the Power of Quantum Computing (i.e. Deutsch-Jozsa Algorithm) and the Two Golden Rules of Quantum Mechanics. The Power of Quantum Computing workshop will use the concept of an interferometer to demonstrate this algorithm, showing the gain in efficiency from quantum […]
Q2Work hosted a workshop Feb. 24 at 12:30-4:00 pm Eastern Time/11:30-3:00 pm Central Time. This workshop, Systemic Change in QIS Education, was primarily aimed at people working on designing, implementing, and/or scaling quantum education programs. My role in the workshop was to share some of the efforts being made to increase awareness of quantum in […]
This Dear Colleague Letter (DCL) encourages submission of proposals for projects that will motivate and prepare students for quantum industries of the future. The National Science Foundation (NSF) is interested in preparation of students for quantum information science and engineering (QISE) at all levels and in all settings, both formal and informal.
We got exciting news today. Quantum for All has received Conference funding from National Science Foundation (NSF) to provide professional development for high school teachers in the area of quantum physics. The primary focus is integrating quantum concepts into current curriculum. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, all face-to-face conferences are being pushed to July 2020… but […]
