QTraining for Bronze is an internal 2-week training program for Bronze, the introductory tutorial of QWorld. The main aim of the program is to train mentors who will do mentoring later on in QBronze workshops organized by their groups, by the other QCousins, or by QWorld.
The prerequisite is having basic knowledge of quantum computing or participating in one of the previous QBronze.
Please be aware that this program is only for people who are interested in being mentors and educators. We expect the trained people to do mentoring later on in QBronze workshops.
31 participants from 11 countries completed our training program successfully:
18 participants completed our tutorial Bronze for the first time, and so, they also received their QBronze workshop diplomas.
- Özlem Salehi (QWorld, QTurkey)
- Anastasija Trizna (QLatvia)
- Abuzer Yakaryılmaz (QWorld, QLatvia, University of Latvia)
|Yakaryılmaz is partially supported by ERDF project Nr. 184.108.40.206/19/A/005 “Quantum computers with constant memory”.|
Week 1 – Revising Bronze
In the first week of the program, participants complete the Bronze material (even if they have completed before) in a critical manner, with keeping in mind possible improvements and extensions. Online mentor support is provided for the participants during the first week.
As a part of the training program, participants will be preparing and submitting questions about Bronze:
- At least one question per notebook
- At least two generic questions per section
The expected time to complete the revision: Up to 20 hours.
Suggested working plan:
Day 1: Basics of Classical Systems
Day 2: Basics of Quantum Systems
Day 3: Quantum Operators on a Real Valued Qubit + multi-qubits
Day 4: Superdense coding and quantum teleportation
Day 5: Grover’s Search
Week 2 – Preparation for the Final Q/A Session
Each participant will be associated with a group. Both, individuals and groups, will be assigned with a certain number of questions. Some answers should be prepared individually and some should be prepared as a group. The answers should be prepared as Jupyter notebooks.
Each participant is encouraged to ask help within the group when preparing their individual answers.
There will be the best groups awards (selected by the organizers).
