Acting as a quantum: what can I do that a single photon can't?

Games, hands-on activity, Outreach 1-hour hands-on, role-play activity for the general public. Let's act as if we were photons! We are going to cross an interferometer where the paths split and then cross again. In this role play, we will see if there are really differences between how we and photons can do it. Probably you wanna ask who are these photons? Play and discover!

Teaching quantum mechanics at the secondary level

Publication PhD thesis into teaching QM at the secondary, consisting of a review study, an investigation of experts opinions on teaching QM at the secondary level, research into students' difficulties while learning about the infinite 1D potential well and tunneling, and an investigation of the influence of increased understanding of potential energy in classical contexts on the understanding of the 1D potential well and tunneling.

Teaching Science in Today’s Society: The Case of Particle Physics for Primary Schools

Presentations, Publication The rapid changes in science and technology witnessed in recent decades have significantly contributed to the arousal of the awareness by decision-makers and the public as a whole of the need to strengthen the connection between outreach activities of universities and research institutes and the activities of educational institutions, with a central role played by schools. While the relevance of the problem is nowadays unquestioned, no unique and fully satisfactory solution has been identified. In the present paper we would like to contribute to the discussion on the subject by reporting on an ongoing project aimed to teach Particle Physics in primary schools. We will start from the past and currently planned activities in this project in order to establish a broader framework to describe the conditions for the fruitful interplay between researchers and teachers. We will also emphasize some aspects related to the dissemination of outreach materials by research institutions, in order to promote the access and distribution of scientific information in a way suited to the different age of the target students.

Quantum digital-experiment kit (Photoeffect)

Videos This set of videos cover one of the typical experiments in high school regarding quantum physics, the photoeffect. With this approach we offer the user a different way, closer to research, to understand the experiments around the concept of the photoeffect.

Playing with a Quantum Computer: teaching approach

Teaching material, Games, Publication We show a direct and straightforward way to use quantum computers in an introductory course on quantum physics. We use an algorithm that solves a simple and easily understandable problem while providing a quantum advantage. The algorithm we propose is a simple game (Quantum Penny Flip) in which the use of quantum physics offers a winning advantage.

PhotonLab 3D posters

Posters We offer posters in a 3d-world so that school students can prepare themselves for a visit at the students lab "PhotonLab". We give an overview over selected experiments that can be performed by the students themselves during their visit.
