Institutes, Workshops, and Camps
Below are sessions that have been developed. These workshops can be repeated upon request and more topics are under development. Contact us for more information.
Introducing Quantum in the HS Classroom
A 3 to 4 hour, 3 part series on some of the basic tenets of quantum that can be easily integrated into the HS classroom. Topics include using Babinet's Principle to find the width of a hair, the use of polarizers as the basis of cryptography, and fundamental concepts of cryptography.
Wave Particle Duality
A 3 hour, 2 part series on wave particle duality and how it relates to quantum. Wave -Particle Duality is a central tenet of modern physics, but is often misrepresented and is rarely connected to quantum concepts. What does it mean that light is both a wave and a particle? How do we know that? Do scientists really know what is going on with light!!
STEM Quantum Camps
Due to COVID 19, the student quantum camps are being moved to summer 2021. More information will be coming as soon as the location and topics are determined. Check back later.
