Physics professor joins Quantum To-Go program to celebrate Quantum Day

Professor Alex Matos Abiague joined the Quantum To-Go program of the American Physical Society (APS). The program aims to increase the interest of high-school students in the field of quantum science. Professor Matos Abiague conducted a virtual visit to the AP Physics class of MS Ed. Loriann Pawlik at Colgan High School in Manassas, Virginia.

Prof. Matos Abiague introduced the students to phenomena such as quantum tunneling, quantum superposition, and quantum entanglement. The advantages, limitations, and challenges related to the fundamental and technological applications of quantum phenomena were also addressed. Last but not least, the visitor and students established a conversation about carrier opportunities and the future of quantum science.
