Quantum Crypto School for High School Students

Are you a High School Students interested in Quantum Mechanics and Cryptography? You should attend to this summer school in Waterloo!

The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is an exciting week-long program offered to students in Grades 10-12. This year the program will run through August 8-12, 2011. The program is run by the Institute for Quantum Computing in conjunction with the University of Waterloo.

Students will be given a first-hand look into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science – quantum cryptography. Not only will students be exposed to cutting-edge topics like quantum physics and cryptography – they will have the opportunity to meet some of the most renowned researchers the field has to offer. In addition, students will get a tour of quantum computing and quantum cryptography experiments.
