A group of students from the Taylor Allerdice High School will be visiting the University of Pittsburgh on December 17, 2019 to tour the Levy, Hatridge, Frolov, and Dutt labs in the Department of Physics and get a sneak peek of quantum mechanics in action!
PQI organized its 3rd Quantum Day on Friday, April 12, 2019 for the students of Taylor Allderdice High School; a day full of activities, talks, lab tours, and of course pizza. About 20 students, mostly juniors and seniors, from Dr. Janet Waldeck's physics classes arrived early that day at the 321 Allen Hall, where they were greeted by PQI Director Jeremy Levy.
Quantum Day 2017 for Taylor Allderdice High School Students
PQI organized its first Quantum Day this past Thursday, April 6, 2017 for the students of Taylor Allderdice High School; a day full of activities, talks, lab tours, and of course pizza. About 15 students, mostly juniors and seniors, from Dr. Janet Waldeck's physics classes were present, and PQI faculty from Physics, Chemistry, and Engineering departments participated in many ways. Students and faculty alike had a good time learning or talking about research in quantum science and engineering, and through Quantum Day 2017--the first of hopefully many more--PQI has certainly fulfilled its mission statement of helping unify and promote quantum science and engineering to high school students in Pittsburgh.
