Mission

Our mission is to create and foster a diverse community of intellectual engineers and scientists by providing the necessary education and resources to have fun inventing quantum activities and to share knowledge and excitement while interacting with quantum machines and concepts. We envision developing device abstraction concepts and human-machine interfaces related to quantum technologies.

Our Resources

We have several educational materials and activities designed to prepare the future workforce in different areas of quantum technologies. 

The Quantum Game Club is the community of engineers and scientists interacting with quantum machines and creating games and interfaces.

We provide Quantum Programming materials from Microsoft and Quantum Computing Inc.

Click here to see a list of Youtube videos explaining quantum concepts to the general public.

We hold regular workshops and conferences to engage the broader community with quantum technologies. Please visit our event page for the next events.

We have several internships and research opportunities available throughout the year designed to prepare the future workforce in different areas of quantum technologies.

Prizes & Scholarships

 

Prizes for Innovative Ideas

As part of our club activities, we create diverse teams of students from different levels and backgrounds to work with our Ph.D. students and learn, design, and implement quantum applications and create demonstrations in either virtual or physical space. We consider multiple prizes $1-3K each year for best ideas and demos.

Prizes are announced during the Quantum Game Club events.

Scholarships

In addition, approximately 5 summer research scholarships will be available every year to qualified students. The scholarships can support students who are engaged in research, education and quantum programming activities.

For more information about the scholarships, please register for Quantum Game Club.
