Quantum Computing School Summer Camp

Applications are now closed for the 2023 SQA Quantum Computing Summer Camp, delivered by Qubit by Qubit (QxQ) — a leading educational organisation in quantum — in collaboration with Sydney Quantum Academy (SQA).

The 1-week summer camp is designed for high school students to learn more about the fascinating world of quantum physics and explore quantum phenomena like superposition and entanglement.

The summer camp includes special workshops on how to code quantum gates and circuits — the building blocks of quantum algorithms using IBM’s quantum coding language, Qiskit.

This year's summer camp was held virtually on 16-20 January 2023 with a bonus day in person. The camp was open to Australian high school students (9-12) and recent school leavers. No prior quantum or coding knowledge is required or expected.

Check out all the action from previous summer camps.

Our activities

Open Day - in July 2022 we ran an open day with our partner universities at The Quantum Terminal to deep dive into the undergraduate and postgraduate quantum student experience, and the many study options available.  We also had some fun quantum demonstrations on hand. Check out the recording from the day.

Outreach Ambassadors - We have a great team of enthusiastic outreach ambassadors available for school presentations or outreach events. Contact us at info.sqa@sydney.edu.au if you have an event coming up.

Get updates on outreach activities - Sign up to our mailing list + select "community and schools outreach" to receive updates on upcoming outreach activities and events.
