Quantum Computing as a High School Module

  title={Quantum Computing as a High School Module},
  author={Anastasia Perry and Ranbel F. Sun and Ciaran Hughes and Joshua Isaacson and Jessica Turner},
  journal={arXiv: Physics Education},
Quantum computing is a growing field at the intersection of physics and computer science. This module introduces three of the key principles that govern how quantum computers work: superposition, quantum measurement, and entanglement. The goal of this module is to bridge the gap between popular science articles and advanced undergraduate texts by making some of the more technical aspects accessible to motivated high school students. Problem sets and simulation based labs of various levels are… 

Quantum Computing for High-School Students An Experience Report

The experiences and findings suggest that basic quantum computing concepts are palatable for high-school students, and-due to significant differences between classical and quantum computing-early exposure to quantum computing is a valuable addition to the set of problem-solving and computing skills that high- schoolers obtain before entering university.

Quantum Computing: an undergraduate approach using Qiskit

Gleydson Fernandes de Jesus, Maria Helóısa Fraga da Silva, Teonas Gonçalves Dourado Netto, Lucas Queiroz Galvão, Frankle Gabriel de Oliveira Souza, and Clebson Cruz are students at the Universidade Federal do Oeste da Bahia.

Quantum Computing As a Topic in Computer Science Education

Five core ideas of quantum computer science are identified and a literature review is used to identify, categorize, and contrast different explanatory approaches for these ideas.

A Computer Science-Oriented Approach to Introduce Quantum Computing to a New Audience

The proposed methodology considers quantum computing as a generalized probability theory rather than a field emanating from physics and utilizes quantum programming as an educational tool to reinforce the learning process.

Teaching Quantum Computing to an Audience Beyond Physicists: A Case Study over 22 Workshops in 10 Countries

It is argued that hands-on programming tasks based training workshops focusing on quantum computing as a generalized probability theory is an effective way to introduce quantum computing to a wider audience.

Educational Resources for Promoting Talent in Quantum Computing

It is advocated that quantum computing concepts can, effectively, be introduced at the primary and secondary school level, and a number of publicly available resources are compiled in this paper for integrating Quantum Computing to the education for K-12 age groups.

Quantum games and interactive tools for quantum technologies outreach and education

Abstract. We provide an extensive overview of a wide range of quantum games and interactive tools that have been employed by the quantum community in recent years. We present selected tools as

Forecasting timelines of quantum computing

It is estimated that that proof-of-concept fault-tolerant computation based onsuperconductor technology is unlikely to be exhibited before 2026, and that quantum devices capable of factoring RSA-2048 are unlikely to exist before 2039.

Quanteninformatik als Thema und Aufgabengebiet informatischer Bildung

Interviews mit Expertinnen and Experten werden in der vorliegenden Untersuchung fünf wesentliche Ideen der Quanteninformatik identifiziert, und eine erste Annäherung an zentrale Begriffe and Ideen sowie deren Erklärungsansätze vorzunehmen ist es.

Quantum Information Science for HEP

We summarise current and future applications of quantum information science to theoretical high energy physics. Three main themes are identified and discussed; quantum simulation, quantum sensors and
