Quantum physics and technologies are usually shown as highly mathematical and mysterious -but it does not have to be that way. Here are some playful introductions to quantum technologies, which are directly related to applications.

The Second Quantum Revolution

Quantum Technologies make use of our ability to detect and manipulate single quantum objects, such as atoms, photons or electrons.

    Debugging quantum computers is tricky - you only get faint information on where the errors may be. Discover these errors and see whether you can do better than an algorithm.

  • Science at home

    Here is a true citizen science project: Help trapping atoms before they go away. First results have already led to a publication, showing that gamers optimize different from comptuers.

    Writing a quantum computer program gives you powerful commands that your classical computer does not have - some of them easiest to understand with geometry. Build a quantum algorithm from such geometric building blocks.
