A summer school for high school students.
The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is an exciting week-long program offered to students in Grades 10-12. This year the program will run through August 8-12, 2011. The program is run by the Institute for Quantum Computing in conjunction with the University of Waterloo.
Students will be given a first-hand look into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science - quantum cryptography. Not only will students be exposed to cutting-edge topics like quantum physics and cryptography - they will have the opportunity to meet some of the most renowned researchers the field has to offer. In addition, students will get a tour of quantum computing and quantum cryptography experiments.
High school students ages 15 and older are eligible to apply.
The majority of enrolments will be reserved for Grade 11 students, however the program is open to accepting Grade 10 and Grade 12 applicants.
The QCSYS requires that applicants have taken (or are currently finishing) Grade 11 Mathematics (or higher). Grade 11 Physics, while not mandatory, is recommended. Those students in Grade 10 will be an exception.
As the school will be conducted in English, students are expected to be fluent in this language.
The program has space for 40 students including a few spots for international students.
There is no cost to attend. IQC will cover the cost of all airfare, lodging, meals and supplies.
