The Centre for Quantum Technologies
is offering a five-day workshop from 17-21 June in quantum technologies for high-school students. Students will study advanced concepts in math, computer science and quantum physics, 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.
We accept registration from teachers for two students per school, with the option to put an additional two students on the camp waitlist. Waitlist places will be offered from 3 June. This year, we also have limited spaces for students who wish to register themselves. The final deadline for registration is 10 June.

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. Locally, Singtel supports quantum reseach in a corporate lab, CQT is collaborating with the Infocomm Media Development Authority and there are a number of quantum technology start-ups.
Students with full attendance will be awarded a certificate of participation. There will be no examination.
How do students find the camp?
This will be the fifth year of QCamp. Here is some of the feedback collected from students after past editions. You can read more on the CQT webiste about recent QCamps held in 2018 and in 2017.
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 2019. On Wednesday afternoon we will be making a field trip to the Institute of Materials Research and Engineering at A*STAR. There will be a one-way bus, with students departing from there.
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.
