Camp Overview

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 on a real quantum computer! This camp is like no other you've experienced.

Through hands-on activities and projects, students learn how to construct quantum circuits and algorithms all while developing programming skills in Python. No prior knowledge required.

What Students Learn

  • 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!
  • 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

Tech Requirements

Summer camps are instructed live in English virtually during the EST time zone over the dates listed. Students will require access to reliable broadband on a device that is audio and video capable, ideally from a quiet and distraction-free environment. Devices may include computers, laptops, notebooks, and Chromebooks. Students will need to access Zoom and Google Co-lab from their devices to participate fully in the course.


Limited scholarship funds are available to cover the cost of tuition for eligible, US-based students that exemplify need and alignment with The Coding School’s mission. Students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds in STEM are encouraged to apply. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is May 31. Scholarship awardees will be notified by June 7.

Completing an application does not guarantee that an applicant will receive a scholarship. Scholarships will be distributed using a lottery system on a rolling basis until the application closes on May 31. Applicants will be notified by June 7 at the latest of one of three possible outcomes: scholarship recipient, waitlist, or not selected for a scholarship. If selected, recipients will have 72-hours to accept their spot. If waitlisted, applicants will be contacted if a recipient does not accept their scholarship, or if additional scholarships are funded. Click here to apply for a scholarship.
