We’re joining with the National Science Foundation, quantum scientists, university professors and instructional designers to assemble a mind-bendingly engaging set of videos and educational resources about the science and possibilities of quantum technology.
Join us! Be a part of reaching the goal of completing 1,000+ Learning Activities. Together, we can prepare for jobs and business opportunities in the emerging quantum sector which holds the promise of revolutionizing computing, cybersecurity, healthcare, finance and many other in-demand fields.
Anyone is welcome to use the video links and education resources, but we invite educators and interested adults to register.
Once you register, we’ll email your grade-appropriate quantum education resources and a schedule of the live stream events.
As an appreciation to those who register, we’ll enter you into a drawing to win an Echo Show 10 (You’ll have five chances to win).
You can add the resources to your instructional plan between April 14-May 31 to help reach the goal of 1,000+ Learning Activities!
Gig City Goes Quantum is a collaborative effort to prepare for the Quantum Age starting in Chattanooga, Tennessee and spreading cooperatively through schools, universities, companies and organizations across the U.S. Because quantum technologies promise transformative advances, we’re growing a “quantum ecology” beginning with students interested in preparing for jobs in this rapidly emerging sector. We are educators, scientists, entrepreneurs, and community leaders focused on working together to realize the vast technological and economic potential of accelerating the commercialization of quantum technologies.Gig City Goes Quantum Partners
Back in 2010, EPB of Chattanooga became the first in the U.S. to launch Gig-speed internet services using a community-wide fiber optic network to send unprecedented amounts of data as light pulses. Because quantum technologies utilize entangled light particles, EPB had the ideal fiber optic facilities to join efforts to develop a new quantum cybersecurity technology that earned an R&D 100 Award in 2021. That success led to the launch of EPB Quantum Network powered by Qubitekk, America’s first industry-led commercially available quantum network in support of accelerating the commercialization of quantum technologies.
In keeping with “The Chattanooga Way” of collaboration, Gig City Goes Quantum aims to support the development of the quantum ecology including education, workforce preparation, and business support in partnership with governmental entities, universities, schools, companies and non-profit organizations.
