Generation Quantum: Skills training goes Outback

Sydney Quantum Academy

IN A BOOTCAMP held in Dubbo, the last big town before hitting the Outback, high school students got to ask some unusual questions: how do you manipulate data at the atomic level? Can particles really be in two places at once? And how do you get a job in this blossoming high-tech industry?

Led by prominent researchers from around the country, the Quantum Tech Camp – the third for high schoolers staged by Sydney Quantum Academy, but the first in regional Australia – saw students dive deep into the spooky quantum world. It was offered in partnership with the NSW Department of Education’s Regional Industry Education Partnerships (RIEP) program.
