Camps created with researchers at:

Be one of the first high school students in the world to develop skills in quantum computing - the technology of the future!

Teleportation is no longer just for science fiction. In quantum computing - it’s real. Can one particle be in multiple places at the same time? In quantum physics - it’s possible with superposition. Learn these weird wonders of quantum computing along with the bizarre phenomena of entanglement in our summer quantum computing camp. You’ll also learn Qiskit, IBM’s quantum coding language and even run code in a real quantum computer! This camp is like no other you’ve experienced.

Camp Options:
  • Two-week camp (recommended): July 25 - August 5
  • One-week camp: July 25 - 29, 2022

The two-week camp is highly recommended to gain the maximum learning benefit from the camp. If you can only make the first week, you’ll still get a headstart in learning about this revolutionary tech field.


What students learn

In Week 1, students will:
  • Learn about quantum mechanics, quantum computation, and quantum algorithms
  • Understand of the limitations of classical computers and the massive potential of quantum computing
  • Learn key concepts including qubits, Bloch sphere, superposition & entanglement.
  • Construct quantum circuits and send them to a real quantum computer!
In Week 2, students delve deeper:
  • Write code to simulate quantum circuits
  • Implement the Quantum Key Distribution (QKD)
  • Run a Variational Quantum Eigensolver to simulate a molecule
  • Perform operations that represent quantum gates
  • Use Python libraries to send circuits to a quantum computer and analyze the results
  • Understand key quantum algorithms such as the Deutsch Jozsa and Grover’s algorithms

Lead Instructor

Zac Coleman

Zac recently graduated from Pepperdine University in California with degrees in physics and math. In the fall, he will begin a Master's degree program at Oxford University in the United Kingdom studying Theoretical Physics. Zac's research focus is in the theoretical foundations of quantum computing, from algorithms to quantum information technology. Zac is an experienced and enthusiastic educator, having taught courses for Qubit by Qubit in the past. In addition to teaching with QxQ, he has several years of experience as a physics, math, and computer science tutor. Zac can't wait to spend the summer sharing his love of quantum computing with middle school and high school students around the world!
