Quantum Ambassadors Programme

The Quantum Ambassadors Programme, funded by Quantum City partner the Quantum Communications Hub, aims to take quantum into the A-Level (or equivalent) classroom and provide the opportunity for students' knowledge and understanding of quantum to extend beyond the national curriculum and to enable them to appreciate the vast career opportunities within the field. The project, which is led by STEM Learning, will help teachers to lead quantum physics activities in their classrooms, with the support of STEM Ambassadors. Students will gain an enhanced understanding of the key concepts of quantum and how these are being utilised in new cutting-edge quantum technologies, along with applications of these technologies and career opportunities in quantum. Find out more about how your school could get involved on the STEM Learning website
