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!
The Quantum Cryptography School for Young Students (QCSYS) is an exciting week-long enrichment program for students hosted by the Institute for Quantum Computing at the University of Waterloo. This year the program will run through August 12 - 16, 2013. The school offers an interesting blend of lectures, hands-on experiments and group work focused on quantum cryptography < a cutting-edge field that utilizes the fascinating laws of quantum mechanics to develop unbreakable encryption that protects communication.
On Thursday, August 15th, Professor Rui Q. Yang from the University of
Oklahoma, will deliver a joint WIN-ECE seminar entitled "Quantum Engineered Optoelectronic Devices based on Interband Cascade Structures".
This seminar is free and open to the public!
