The quantum computer is a computer of the future. Instead of working with bits that have two states (0 and 1), quantum computers work with quantum bits which can be in an infinite number of possible states. They can solve certain difficult problems much faster than we know using ordinary computers and also pave the way for new scientific explorations. Researchers at universities and in industry are working hard to build this fascinating device. But how does a quantum computer actually work and how can it be programmed?

In our five-week online course “Quantum Quest”, you will explore what makes quantum computers so special, solve tricky puzzles and learn the mathematics of real quantum algorithms together with other students from all over the world. This year, the Quantum Quest is jointly organised by the QuSoft research centre in Amsterdam and the Cluster of Excellence CASA of the Ruhr-Universität Bochum.

Sign up here!

This is what awaits you:

Register by 13 October and become part of the Quantum Quest!

There are two ways to join: high-school teachers can sign up a complete class, or students (16-20 years old) from anywhere around the world can sign up individually. Registration closes on 13 October 2023.

The Quantum Quest is thankful for support by the Quantum Software Consortium and the Cluster of Excellence Cyber Security in the Age of Large-Scale Adversaries.
