University of Waterloo quantum cryptography program

The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is a unique, eight-day enrichment program for students hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo.

QCSYS will run next summer from Friday, Aug. 10 to Friday, Aug. 17, with students arriving on Thursday, Aug. 9 and departing on Saturday, Aug. 18. The program is open to Grade 10, 11 and 12 students aged 15 or older.

The school offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on quantum cryptography — a cutting-edge field that utilizes the fascinating laws of quantum mechanics to develop unbreakable encryption that protects communication.

Students get a first-hand look into the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics, cryptography and how they merge into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science: quantum cryptography. Participants meet and collaborate with some of the most renowned researchers the field has to offer. Daily social activities encourage relationship building between participants.

There’s a $250 registration fee due upon acceptance into the program. Some bursaries are available. The application deadline is Friday, March 23. Please go here for more details.
