2021 Overview

A recap of the 2021 workshop is available here.

The Laboratory for Physical Sciences (LPS) Qubit Collaboratory (LQC) is hosting a Summer of Quantum Workshop for rising undergraduate seniors and graduate students enrolled in physics and engineering programs. Leading quantum scientists will provide a two-week introduction to quantum computing from algorithms to physical implementations. The workshop will include quantum tutorials, interactive, hands-on projects, and virtual lab tours. The goal of the workshop is to provide an onramp for interested students into quantum information science. Registration is limited! Apply before the June 15th Deadline.

  • Dates: July 12 – 23, 2021
