Are your students curious about the strange world of quantum phenomena and the possibilities it holds to participate in technology of the future? Quantum for All has opportunities for you to learn quantum information science and vetted ways to teach it to your students.
Quantum for All will support 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.
The model utilizes multiple layers of support including content experts, a leadership team, and peers. The Leadership Team Members (LTMs) develop content, assist in project evaluation, organize workshops, camps, and sessions at 4 sites across the country. Each site will have additional Instructional Leaders (ILs) responsible to assist the LTMs in teaching the 2022 face-to-face teacher workshops and student camps.
Workshops will be virtual in the summer of 2021 and Face-to-face in 2022 at each of the 4 main sites (Utah, Pennsylvania, North Central Texas, and South Texas). Educators completing the 2021 and 2022 workshops will be eligible to host a student camp in their own district in the summer of 2023.
Instructional Leaders will meet Face to Face, July 17-19, 2021 in Arlington, TX. Must apply.
The Leadership Team Members will meet Face to Face July 17-21, 2021 to plan for 2022 and 2023. No application needed, already appointed.
Any physics, chemistry, or STEM high school teacher may apply to attend the teacher workshops (see links below). The dates for the summer 2021 virtual workshops are July 20-23 and will be for 4 hours each day.
