The Stratford Story Project, devoted to collecting and preserving the
stories of Stratford seniors, was founded by University of Waterloo
English student Lindsay Kroes during her Spring 2013 co-op term. She interviewed fifty seniors between the ages of 70 and 98, writing their stories, and gathering them into a published anthology entitled "Gather by the Avon: The Stratford Story Project." The fifty-one stories in the book are rich with social history and charm, celebrating the remarkable experiences of ordinary people.

John Preskill, Richard P. Feynman Professor of Theoretical
Physics at the California Institute of Technology presents "Quantum
Computing and the Entanglement Frontier". Preskill will explain why he loves quantum entanglement, the elusive feature making quantum information fundamentally different from information in the macroscopic world.

Quantum cryptography aims to achieve security from fundamental physical principles, such as the quantum mechanical phenomena of entanglement and Heisenberg's uncertainty principle. In the last few years, significant progress has been made in the theoretical understanding of quantum cryptography, and its technological feasibility has been demonstrated experimentally. Quantum cryptography is therefore regarded as one of the most promising candidates for a future quantum technology.

ChemEd 2013 Conference

The University of Waterloo is proud to bring the ChemEd conference back to the place where it began in 1973. The conference will be held from Sunday July 28, 2013 to Thursday, August 1, 2013.  

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 — 8:30 AM to Friday, August 23, 2013 — 4:30 PM EDT

Throughout the summer, our off-campus teams visit communities that are beyond the reach of our main campus programs in Waterloo.

At the beginning of the week, campers give the "team van" a unique paint job that everyone in the community comes to recognize! From there, the week is filled with engaging, hands-on engineering and science activities.

Many of our activities make use of our camp laptops, LEGO and electronics kits which were purchased exclusively for our non-Waterloo campers!
