Quantum physics is all around us. Here, we take a look at some of the surprising places modern quantum science can be found. To make sure you are well-prepared for your first steps into the quantum realm, we introduce our global outreach initiatives in Dirac notation, the language that experts use every day to describe quantum phenomena. In particular, the notation ⟨ A | B ⟩ denotes the overlap between A and B, and can be read as A in B.
Quantum | School
Quantum in the School is a global event, an initiative of World Quantum Day aiming at connecting schools worldwide with Quantum Science and Technology, in the days and weeks around April 14th. It was originally inspired by QuanTime, an effort to introduce quantum science in middle-school and high-school classrooms across the US.
If your school would like to be part of this initiative, you can:
– Join an existing event by contacting the representative of your country in the World Quantum Network.
– Submit here the event your school is organizing to celebrate World Quantum Day!
Quantum | Museum
Quantum in the Museum is an initiative of the World Quantum Day to bring quantum science and technology to museums around the World, both science and art museums, and their laboratories.
Join this initiative, and submit your Quantum@Museum event as part of the World Quantum Day celebration.
Quantum | Calendar
Every day is a Quantum Day! The Quantum Calendar project is an initiative of the World Quantum Day to record all quantum days. What other dates and numbers do you consider important for Quantum Science and Technology?
When was quantum physics first taught in your country? And in your university/school?
