Quantum computing will change the world as we know it. Yet no in-depth quantum education exists for K-12 students and beyond… until now.
The Coding School and IBM Quantum are offering the first ever year-long quantum course for 5,000 high school students and above. This Introduction to Quantum Computing course, taught by instructors from MIT, is entirely free and will last a full academic year, from October 2020 to May 2021.
Making quantum education accessible to everyone
No prior quantum or STEM knowledge is required, and high school students and those from underrepresented backgrounds in STEM will be prioritized for acceptance.
High school students who take this course will be among the first K-12 students to gain in-depth knowledge in quantum computing. Complete with weekly lectures and labs led by TAs, students will be introduced to the field of quantum, including quantum mechanics, quantum computation, and quantum algorithms. Through the course, students will run a program on a real quantum computer.
