Teaching students about the field that will change the world as we know it

Applications Open for 2020-2021 Quantum Computing Course for High School Students and above

Be one of the first high school students in the world to learn quantum computing!

Partnered with IBM, we’re offering the first ever, year-long quantum course open to high school students. With live instruction from MIT and Oxford quantum researchers, high school students and above will join a global cohort of future quantum scholars and learn about a field often not taught until graduate school.

What We Do

We’re dedicated to training the future quantum workforce by offering quantum education for high school students and above around the globe. With instruction being led by MIT and Oxford researchers, we’re pioneering long-term education in quantum mechanics, quantum computation, and quantum algorithms to help:

"Before this camp, I had very little exposure to quantum computation. In fact, when applying for the camp, I had to research what quantum mechanics even meant! At the completion of this camp, I was not only able to define what quantum computation meant but also understand the deeper attributes. I loved how this camp was able to make connections with other material outside of quantum; this helped with understanding the material and placing quantum in a broader context. I will definitely look into quantum mechanic classes in college! I can't wait to see the future of quantum mechanics! This camp has also inspired me to pursue and learn more concepts, outside of my high school curriculum."
“This camp is one of the best experiences that I’ve ever had...As a Latin american student, I don’t have a lot of opportunities to learn topics like quantum computing or quantum mechanics. This experience was awesome, I enjoyed everything. Of course it was challenging at first, but I learned a lot and it made me realize that maybe quantum computing is what I want to do for the rest of my life.”
“This camp was amazing. It truly combines two of my favorite passions, engineering and physics. We learned so much about quantum physics, which was amazing enough, but the hands-on activities really made my year. Currently, one of the best things to happen in 2020. I learned so much and the teachers and my peers were so great, helpful, cooperative, and all had a learning attitude which just built up my love for physics once again. Then when we actually built quantum circuits and ran them, my mind was blown for another time. The course really was able to relate the different topics really well and though it may be challenging with the high level math skills and concepts, it clicked for me after the quantum chess play through and I became inspired. Making me want to study or research quantum computing in the future.”
"I LOVED THE CAMP! There are many students such as myself whether that be minority, low income, etc. who, by nature of social and systematic marginalization, lack many opportunities and chances of exposure...I had never heard of Quantum Coding before this camp, let alone thought that I would enjoy it! This camp and this scholarship gave me an opportunity and a new liking for another field of STEM study that without it, I would not have known anything about!"
"If you see me in the field of quantum computing in the future, just know I started here."
"This past week has honestly been life-changing and eye- opening! I am looking forward to exploring quantum for the rest of my life."

Rhodes Scholar

Amir graduated from MIT with a B.S. in Physics and Electrical Engineering and Computer Science and an M.Eng in Electrical Engineering and Computer Science in 2018. He is currently a graduate fellow in MIT's EECS department and a recipient of the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. His research motivation is to use quantum mechanics to gain an advantage over current technology and protocols. As an undergraduate he worked with Dirk Englund on control and high fidelity readout of NV centers in diamond.

Francisca Vasconcelos is currently a senior at MIT studying Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, and Physics. This fall, she will be pursuing a MSc in Mathematics and Foundation of Computer Science at the University of Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. She has performed research in a variety of fields, ranging from optical communication for cubesats at NASA JPL to boosting neural network performance at the MIT Media Lab. However, Francisca has spent the last two years focused on quantum computing, working on quantum measurement, machine learning for quantum, error mitigation, and radiation studies as an undergraduate researcher in the MIT Engineering Quantum Systems group and as an intern at Rigetti Computing. Furthermore, Francisca is very interested in education, serving as a course instructor for MIT’s winter-term Intro to Quantum Computing course for two years and leading The Coding School’s quantum curriculum development team.
