High School Quantum Computing Class sponsored by IBM Quantum

Are you a high school student who wants to develop in-depth, real world skills in quantum computing? This first-of-its kind course is for you!

The Experience

Through two semesters of weekly lectures, lab sections, and homework assignments, students develop a foundational understanding of quantum computing, including basic linear algebra, quantum mechanics, quantum computation and information, and quantum algorithms. They will even have the chance to code on a real quantum computer. Students will receive a certificate upon completion of the course.

Each week students participate in three activities: a 1.5 hour lecture, a 1-hour lab with a Teaching Assistant, and a homework assignment. Lectures serve as an opportunity to provide conceptual understanding about a topic, whereas labs are a chance for students to gain hands-on experience. Instructors and teaching assistants are from leading quantum universities, including MIT, Stanford, and University of Waterloo. Additional support is available for students including homework review sessions and office hours.
