Designed for Grades K-3

What is Quantum Physics?

Provided by Tech Goes Home and the Enterprise Center, this lesson introduces students to quantum science, quantum scientists, and their benefit to society. It includes introductory elements of three of the six Tennessee K-8 Science Standard core principles: Foundational Concepts, Data and Analysis, and Impacts of Computing.

Designed for Grades K-4

What is Quantum Computing?

Provided by Tech Goes Home and the Enterprise Center, this lesson introduces students to quantum computing and its benefits to society, including fun exercises in code cracking and building your own Thaumatrope! It includes introductory elements of five of the six Tennessee K-8 Science Standard core principles: Foundational Concepts, Algorithmic Thinking, Programming Concepts, Data and Analysis, and Impacts of Computing.

Designed for Grades 3-6

Quantum Code Crunchers

Provided by NASA, this lesson explores how quantum communications can be used to secure important data in a fun code-crunching game!

Designed for Grades 3-6

How Does Quantum Computing Work?

Provided by Tech Goes Home and the Enterprise Center, this lesson introduces elementary students to quantum computing, how it works, and how it differs from classical computing. It includes introductory elements of five of the six Tennessee K-8 Science Standard core principles: Foundational Concepts, Algorithmic Thinking, Programming Concepts, Data and Analysis, and Impacts of Computing.

Designed for Grades 6-12

A.I. Emotion Detector

Students train a computer to use a webcam to detect and respond to different emotions using machine learning (Google Teachable Machine) while getting first-hand experience by coding a MicroBit to handle the algorithm using the Vittascience Adacraft Platform. As they train a digital system to interact intelligently with the real world, they will experience the limitations of classical computing and learn about the powerful capabilities quantum computing can unlock.

Designed for Grades 5-12

Skeletal Tracking

Object detection and motion tracking currently depend on sophisticated algorithms and equipment. As quantum computing further develops and expands the capacity of machine learning, these systems will become increasingly accurate. In this activity, students will build a system that uses a webcam and a 3D printed flower to allow a user to control the color of the flower (LED) wirelessly through a skeletal tracking program they create using A.I.

Designed for Grades K-12

QUANTIME

The National Q-12 Partnership has curated dozens of quantum activities ranging from hands-on to online, plus additional learning links. These activities, suitable for K-12 learners, are intended to make quantum information science accessible and entertaining. In this activity designed by the Public Education Foundation, students will build a system that uses a webcam and a 3D printed flower to allow a user to control the color of the flower (LED) wirelessly through a skeletal tracking program they create using A.I.

About the program

Preparing for the Quantum Age

Brought to you by the Chattanooga Quantum Collaborative and EPB, Gig City Goes Quantum is a joint effort to prepare our communities to reap the rewards of the coming Quantum Age. 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.
