QWC Session: Quantum in your classroom

Quantum in your Classroom is an introduction to quantum science for elementary, middle, and high school teachers. Come learn about what quantum is, why it is important for your students, and where you can find resources to integrate it into your classrooms. No prior knowledge of quantum is required. Future professional development opportunities will be available to participants.

Speaker: Jessica Rosenberg, Nancy Holincheck | George Mason University

Tuesday, November 29, 2022,  5-7 pm at Quantum World Congress
