Welcome to The Quantum Quest!

The goal of this five-week adventure is for you to learn the basics of quantum computing. By the end of it, you will understand what are quantum bits and quantum algorithms, and what are they good for. Along the way, you will become good friends with Alice and Bob who live in year 2058 and (just like you) also tinker with quantum computers after school. While scientists are still building actual quantum computers in their labs today, in 2058 quantum computers are everywhere, even in your pocket! However, as with all technology, not everyone is using it for good means, so you will have to help your two friends – Alice and Bob – to invent various tricks to protect themselves from the evil hacker Eve. Good luck on your adventure!

Truly quantumly yours,

Maris Ozols & Michael Walter
