High School and Middle School Quantum Education

We work with STEM teachers to develop educational materials to introduce quantum technologies and quantum concepts to K-12 students. We create learning activities, short videos, and animations to communicate quantum concepts with K-12 students. The math-free and intuition-based pedagogy challenges conventional wisdom in teaching quantum technologies with concepts often referred to as counter-intuitive.
