QURECA Launches the Qureka! Box on World Quantum Day to Celebrate Quantum Technology Education and Outreach
QURECA, the leading company in quantum training and resourcing, is proud to announce the launch of the Qureka! Box on World Quantum Day. The Qureka! Box is a ground-breaking quantum educational toolkit that brings the world of quantum computing to life for a diverse young audience, making it more accessible and enjoyable than ever before.
The second quantum revolution has the potential to bring significant changes in the lives of all citizens through quantum science and technology. Quantum technologies will help to simulate pharmacological interactions, create personalized therapies, produce more efficient and less polluting fertilizers, develop materials that can capture and transform carbon dioxide emissions, and much more.
The Qureka! Box is designed to introduce to high school and undergraduate students, as well as the general public, the fascinating world of quantum computing.
The box features interactive game-based hands-on teaching and learning tools in quantum computing promoting maximum engagement and interest while ensuring that nobody is left behind. The box provides a complete set of tools that minimizes the need for abstract imagination.
After spending over a year of development, the Qureka! Box is now ready, with the purpose of making quantum computing easy to teach and learn.
The quantum world is not a world we experience every day, its abstraction requires a lot of imagination to understand. Quantum computing relies on mathematical formalism, adding to the difficulty of the subject.
The Qureka! Box untangles quantum computing concepts in a simple, fun, and engaging way, generating “eureka” moments that promote motivation and recall. The interactive game-based tools allow students to experience the world of small and incorporate the historical knowledge of the development of quantum technology to become familiar with the key scientists and historical accounts of the subject.
The Qureka! Box includes physical models like the Qubit and a 3D Bloch sphere invented by QURECA that students can touch, interact with, and even build to help them grasp firmly the key concepts of quantum technology: spin, uncertainty, superposition, and state. Students will also be able to immerse themselves in quantum phenomena like entanglement through elaborately designed games.
Comparing the differences between classical computing and quantum computing through games helps ensure that students understand the advantages of quantum computing. Through cards and a real quantum computer lab, students can visualize quantum states, gates, and circuits, until they can implement and simulate quantum circuits, beginning to build real skills for quantum computing.
The Qureka! Box has been successfully tested in more than 10 pilot workshops organized for over 200 high school and undergraduate students. It is a proven quantum computing education methodology for teachers, and the solution to the quantum workforce of the future.
Currently, more than 100 Qureka! Boxes have been pre-ordered worldwide, including in North America, Canada, Europe, and other regions. Looking ahead, we have ambitious plans to expand our global reach and make the Qureka! Box accessible to as many schools as possible around the world. At the same time, the QURECA team is already developing the second phase of the Qureka! Box.
QURECA is at the forefront of providing a solution to the quantum workforce skills bottleneck through outreach and educational tools and resources that support individuals and businesses to be part of the quantum revolution. In 2019, the Royal Society described QURECA Ltd. as the company that “fills the gaps in the existing quantum community, creating a society ready for quantum through a common language.”
