The Centre for Quantum Technologies
is offering a four-day workshop from 28 May to 1 June in quantum technologies for high-school students. The camp will have a break on Vesak Day on Tuesday 29 May. Students will study advanced concepts in math, computer science, quantum physics, and cryptography, and see experiments demonstrating quantum phenomena. They will be introduced to research that is throwing new light on our understanding of the universe and building the foundation for new kinds of technologies, from quantum cryptography to quantum computers. Registration is closed. Q Camp is fully subscribed.
Who is it for?
The programme is best suited to students entering JC2 who are excelling
or particularly enthusiastic in physics and maths.
What will participants get out of it?
Students will be exposed to physics, maths and computer science going beyond their syllabus,
getting a taste of what they could study as undergraduates, and what real
scientific research – where the answers aren't known yet – looks like.
As companies such as Google and IBM are investing in research in quantum
technologies, students will also gain a glimpse into an area with industry jobs.
Students with full attendance will be awarded a certificate of participation. There will be no examination.
This will be the fourth year of QCamp. Past students have given feedback such as "the whole camp is simply amazing and enriching" and "much of the contents are things we already know but never really understood/linked to quantum, so when those links were drawn, it was fascinating." You can read more about the previous QCamps in 2017 and in 2016.
Who are the instructors?
The course will be taught by research staff and doctoral students at the Centre.
Where is the location?
The workshop will be held at the Centre for Quantum Technologies on the NUS campus.

What is the programme?
The camp offers a mix of lectures, activities and lab visits. Here is our timetable for QCamp 2018. There are two schedules for Friday because we’ll be dividing the group to do some hands-on activities.
How much does it cost?
The workshop is free.
Participants will need to cover their own transport and lunch costs.
Lunch will be taken at nearby eateries on the NUS campus.
