Quantum Week 2023

Have you ever heard of qubits and quantum materials?

Are you curious about how quantum technologies work?

Wondering what Mason does in the quantum era and how to be a part of the team?

Sign up and join us in Quantum Week 2023 and the quantum game challenge!

The Quantum Science and Engineering Center (QSEC) hosted Quantum Week 2023 in order to recognize the work that creates awe-inspiring quantum technologies today and in the future. It was a time for everyone to get together, celebrate, and wonder what the next big thing would be in the 2nd quantum revolutionary. 

The event was held at Mason’s Fairfax campus and Livestream on Zoom, consisting of technical seminars, tech showcase, research posters, career panel discussions, casual talks, as well as quantum game playing and interactive sessions. Academic scholars, industry researchers, startup foundries, and Mason students went together to discuss state-of-the-art technologies, business visions, and education and career opportunities.

Quantum Week Agenda 2023

Are you interested in learning more about some of the key ideas of quantum? Consider joining us for a quantum game challenge at the end of Quantum Week. We will introduce some of the key concepts of quantum and you will get to explore them by playing Chutes and Ladders in the Quantum Realm – the same game, with new quantum rules. After you get the hang of it you and your team will be challenged to create quantum rules for another traditional board game.

Come join the fun and learn about quantum! No prior knowledge is necessary, all are invited to play!
