Quantum computing, which uses quantum phenomena such as superposition and entanglement to perform computations, has the potential to revolutionize nearly every aspect of our lives – from medicine to finance. Students will learn more from our very own Supernova Parent Tom Tsao (6th) and trailblazing UCLA faculty Eric Hudson, Clarice D. Aiello, and Christopher Gutierrez in this 2-part STEMtalk November 18th and 20th during Advisory period, and gain a better understanding of why the term ‘quantum’ is so exciting. Science Academy families are also invited to join their students.
- Tom Tsao has a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Caltech and is a fellow Science Academy Supernova parent.
- Eric Hudson is a professor of physics at UCLA. He is the co-director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) Quantum Leap Challenge Institute for Present and Future Quantum Computation
- Clarice D. Aiello is a professor of electrical engineering at UCLA. Her focus is on Quantum Biology Technology (QuBiT) – the study of quantum sensing in animals.
- Christopher Gutierrez is a professor of physics at UCLA. His focus is quantum material science, including the creation of artificial atoms.
