Quantum Cryptography anyone?
Northumberland Regional High student one of 40 accepted into prestigious summer program
This August William Gray, a Grade 11 student at Northumberland Regional High School, will be attending the Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) at the University of Waterloo Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC)! Only 40 students from grades 11 and 12 - drawn from schools around the world - are accepted into the program.
Each summer, the University of Waterloo Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) runs the Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS). Students get a first-hand look into the physics and mathematics of quantum mechanics, cryptography and how they merge into one of the most exciting topics in contemporary science — quantum cryptography. Participants meet and collaborate with some of the most renowned researchers the field has to offer. Students spend eight days in residence in Waterloo attending lectures and performing hands-on experiments and group work focused on developing unbreakable encryption that protects communication.
