Development of Interactive, Online Quantum Computing Educational Material

In this project, the intern will work closely with the staff of Xanadu, a quantum computing company, to develop educational materials intended for an audience who are comfortable with classical computer programming, but have no prior knowledge or experience with quantum physics or quantum computers. By using interactive, web-based instructional materials, and animated graphics, it is planned to increase the students engagement and learning success. A small study will be carried out to measure the effectiveness of the new educational materials, and identify strengths and areas for improvement.
