Quantum Computing Education – Workforce Development



Quantum professionals from different walks of quantum education, research, and industry are being brought together to help define the future of Europe’s quantum workforce as the second quantum revolution unfolds.


Interactive animation of electromagnetic waves.


The EdQuantum Project 

Hybrid curriculum for upskilling photonics technicians.



Interactive physics simulations.



A collection of interactive animations and visualizations for teaching quantum mechanics.



Quantum mechanics teaching resources from the Institute of Physics.



Home-based resources to support remote teaching of Quantum and Nuclear Physics.



Open Source and Open Access Resources for Quantum Physics Education.


STEM Learning

Describing the behaviour of photons and the interactions with and between subatomic particles, using the photon model to explain observable phenomena.


University of St Andrews

The quantum mechanics visualisation project featuring flash simulations.



Quantum made simple.

The Quantum Magnetism Analysis Model was created to help students as well as researchers who are studying magnetism.  It provides a very simple interface for defining (theoretical) quantum spin models; sliders are automatically created to vary the parameters in the models; and several plots are automatically created to visualize the results.

The third edition to Physlet Quantum Physics represents a major technological advancement in how the 200 Physlet-based interactive materials are delivered to teachers and students alike.

Investigate how atoms can be excited to give off radiation (photons) with models of electron energy diagrams. Explore the effects of energy levels in atoms through interactive computer models. Learn about the different electron orbitals of an atom, and explore three-dimensional models of the atoms. Learn about photons and why they are emitted, and gain an understanding of the link between energy levels and photons as you discover how an atom’s electron configuration affects which wavelengths of light it will admit or absorb.

An explanation of basic quantum mechanics.

These are some educational applets to help visualise various concepts in math, physics, and engineering. They were originally written in Java, but they’ve mostly been converted to Javascript, so you should be able to view them without a Java-capable browser.


Oregon State

SPINS is an interactive computer program that simulates Stern-Gerlach measurements on spin-1/2 and spin-1 particles.


University of Colorado Boulder

Interactive quantum simulations.

Bound Eigenstate Superposition JavaScript Simulation Applet HTML5.



This textbook is a university quantum algorithms/computation course supplement based on Qiskit to help learn: the mathematics behind quantum algorithms, The details about today’s non-fault-tolerant quantum devices and writing code in Qiskit to implement quantum algorithms on IBM’s cloud quantum systems.
