Camps created with quantum researchers at:

Be one of the first middle school students in the world to develop skills in the cutting-edge tech field of quantum computing!

So you think teleportation is just science fiction? Not in the world of quantum computing. In this camp students will dive into sci-fi concepts that are turning into reality with the emergence of quantum computers. Learn what a qubit is, how one item can be in two places at the same time with superposition and the bizarre phenomena of entanglement. You’ll even run code on a real quantum computer!

What students learn

  • Key concepts such as qubits, superposition and teleportation
  • How quantum computing relates to cryptography, space travel, AI and other fields
  • Construct circuits from quantum gates
  • Create a quantum circuit that entangles two qubits
  • Send a circuit to a quantum computer and analyze the results

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!
