Chattanooga Quantum Collaborative doubles down on 2024 plans

The newly formed group plans 4,000 learning activities about quantum before the end of May.

It’s an ambitious goal: completing 4,000 learning activities about quantum technologies between Sunday, April 14, and May 31. Those activities range from learning resources like lessons and games for early learners to academic lectures for more advanced quantum explorers.

Brought to the region by the new Chattanooga Quantum Collaborative, the programming is intended to introduce individuals to what is described as “the next technological revolution: the Quantum Age. Holding promise for advancements in topics ranging from cybersecurity to healthcare, Chattanooga and Hamilton County are getting ready for the future. Join us in learning more about this transformative technology.”

“We’re grateful for the scientists, instructional designers, teachers, and others who have contributed expertise to build a collection of learning resources to help make learning about quantum accessible for everyone,” said Charlie Brock, Chief Executive Officer of the Collaborative.

Interactive opportunities are designed to be completed at school or home, including alive-stream challenge with students at the EPB Institute of Technology and Networking at Tyner Academy. Other activities will include events with quantum experts from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Arizona State University, IonQ, and Qubitekk in presentations available both in person and via live stream.

Other available resources include hands-on activities created by instructional designers at the Public Education Foundation, the Enterprise Center, and the National Q-12 Partnership.

The “2024 World Quantum Day” observation follows a successful 2023 initiative that resulted in more than 2,000 activities completed by students and adult learners across the Chattanooga and Hamilton County area. In 2024, partners expect to see 4,000 quantum-related activities completed during the six-week observation period.
