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 11 and 12. This year the program will run through August 13 — 17, 2012. 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 QCSYS requires that applicants have taken (or are currently finishing) Grade 11 Mathematics (or higher). Grade 11 Physics, while not mandatory, is recommended.
As the school will be conducted in English, students are expected to be fluent in this language.
The program has space for 40 students.
IQC will cover the cost of all Canadian flights, buses and trains. International students can apply for transporation funding. Lodging, meals and supplies are provided for all participants.
