Quantum Physics for Kids
Explore the amazing, emerging field of Quantum Computing and learn about the fascinating quantum mechanics principles that make these new types of computers possible! (Homeschool / Afterschool) #academic
US Grade 3 - 6
Quantum Computing is an exciting new field being developed by scientists around the world! This 4-session course introduces students to the innovative approaches of quantum computing, while also comparing them to classical computing methods. Students will gain an understanding of both traditional computing concepts and newer quantum computing concepts through this course. Plus, they'll be introduced to fascinating quantum mechanics principles such as superposition and entanglement, and learn...
Learners will be introduced to quantum computing and quantum information science concepts. Details of each session's learning goals are listed below: Session 1 Students will learn about: - How classical computers work using transistors, electrical current (electrons) and on/off logic gates. - Comparison of the classical binary bit (with a value of 0 or 1) to the new quantum computing qubit (quantum bit), which can hold a superposition of both 0 and 1. - Possible advantages of quantum computers and quantum information tools for the future. Session 2 Students will learn about: - The quantum mechanical property of superposition. - Wave-particle duality of photons and quantum particles, including protons, neutrons and electrons. - The double slit experiment. - Conceptual introduction to the Shrodinger equation and how it predicts the wave function of quantum particles. - How scientists are developing methods to isolate subatomic particles in a state of superposition for use in quantum computers. Session 3 Students will learn about: - The quantum mechanical property of entanglement. - How entanglement, a relationship between multiple qubits, is a key property of quantum systems. - Possibilities for quantum communication to use entanglement to transfer quantum information. - Exploration of current experiments with entanglement. Session 4 Students will learn about: - Measurement of quantum systems. - The Shrodinger's Cat metaphor and ways in which scientists are implementing measurement in working quantum computers. - The collapse of superpositioned qubits into a specified value. - Discussion of major questions, challenges and areas for further development in quantum computing and information science.
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool.
Assessments OfferedThe instructor will assess learner progress through class discussions and a fun end-of-class quiz.
0No required supplies, but the instructor will provide printable handouts for each class session.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
