    Title: Quantum Teacher Workshops and Virtual Class Visits for Fall


    Learn how to teach quantum in your high school science class, and gain the tools to do it

    Apply for Schrödinger's Class by Monday, November 1.

    Would you like to deepen your understanding of quantum mechanics and learn how to introduce quantum concepts to your students? This fall, the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) is offering Schrödinger’s Class online as a free series of workshops on quantum mechanics and technology that will provide you with lesson plans and affordable, ready-to-go activities to take back to your classroom.

    Participants will have access to three live, online workshops, including:

    ·       Quantum superposition and quantum communication

    ·       Wave-particle duality and quantum computing

    ·       The uncertainty principle

    Participants will be able to choose between weekday evening sessions from Tuesday November 30 – Thursday December 2, or weekend sessions from December 4-5.

    Each session will end with a roundtable Curriculum Connections session for smaller group discussions on how to integrate these quantum concepts into your classes.

    This online workshop series will give you:

    ·       The ability to teach quantum mechanics at the introductory level and beyond,

    ·       Lesson plans and other affordable, ready-to-go activities for you to take back to your classroom, and

    ·       Discussion points about how quantum mechanics can transform society

    The workshop is free and open to all interested teachers, but space is limited.

    Teachers located in Canada and the United States are eligible to receive a free quantum educational materials kit, shipped at no charge, while quantities last.

    You can find more information and the online application here: uwaterloo.ca/institute-for-quantum-computing/programs/schrodingers-class. The application deadline is Monday, November 1.

    Book an Expert for Virtual Quantum Class Visits

    Are you interested in hosting a virtual class visit with a quantum researcher from IQC? One of our quantum experts would be happy to join your class for a one-hour remote session on quantum physics, quantum computing, and quantum technology, along with a Q&A.

    We will accommodate as many requests as possible on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to Grade 11/12 physics classes. We’d also be happy to talk with your school’s Physics and Science Clubs. If interested, please provide your information in the form at this link: https://uwaterloo.ca/institute-for-quantum-computing/iqc-virtual-class-visit.
