QLatvia is the Hadamard of the entangled QCousins. We, as QLatvia, are taking active roles in all QWorld channels. We implemented QDrive project by driving more than 10.000 km across Europe and organized 11 workshops in 8 different countries with 209 handed out diplomas. In total, we have organized 21 two or three-day long Workshop/Bronze by December 17, 2019.
In the world, we organized (i) with RigaTechGirls probably the first women-exclusive (public) workshop on quantum computing (November 10-11, 2018, Riga, Latvia) and (ii) probably the first workshop on quantum programming for high school students (December 1-2, 2018, Riga, Latvia). Each was two days long. Up to date, our youngest diploma awarded participant of a workshop is a 14 years-old girl.
