How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Class Experience

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 career possibilities 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. 
No required homework. However, students will be given resources for further exploration at the end of each class session. 
No required supplies, but the instructor will provide printable handouts for each class session.
The instructor will assess learner progress through class discussions and a fun end-of-class quiz. 
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
