Learning and Teaching Quantum Information Science and engineering (QISE)

About QISE Education

Quantum education at the K-12 levels is just getting started. Currently, the Q-12 community is focused on developing both informal and formal learning opportunities for teachers, students, and families. That encompasses new lessons, events, access to quantum technologies, and information about careers.

Framework for Educators and Curriculum Developers

Wondering where quantum science fits in with STEM classes? Teachers and educational professionals have developed an initial framework to serve as a foundation for developing lessons and curricula.

QuanTime

Bring quantum concepts to your students with informal activities. This program was piloted for World Quantum Day 2022 and will run again in 2023. Activities are ready for classrooms, free, and don't require a background in quantum information science.

Quantum Careers

A career in STEM can also mean a career in Quantum Information Science! Learn about pathways and stories of quantum professionals at work across industry, academia, and government.
