Quantum Opportunities (Teachers)
Looking for some professional development that is "out of the ordinary"? Are your students curious about the strange world of quantum phenomena and the possibilities it holds? The National Science Foundation is funding teacher workshops and student camps where STEM is truly integrated! Chemistry, physics, astronomy, computer science, technology, engineering, and math have quantum as the common denominator. Quantum ideas are behind everyday technologies like lasers, medical equipment, and cell phones.
Quantum for All supports high school teachers who want to embed quantum concepts, that do NOT rely on advanced mathematics, in their curriculum. By providing mentors, equipment, and opportunities to "practice" what they have learned with other peers, our project is built to develop confidence and expand knowledge of quantum information science principles.
Any full time physics, chemistry, or STEM high school teacher was eligible to attend the virtual 2021 teacher workshops and apply for the face-to-face summer 2022 workshops and camps.
