Talk Description

Quantum Mechanics and You: Connecting to the Everyday

Despite the surprising ubiquity of quantum phenomena and their applications in daily life, the public commonly regards quantum theory as esoteric and incomprehensible. To bridge this gap, I propose a design for an algebra-based, first-year university course titled “Quantum Mechanics and You.” This course takes a principles-applications approach on many quantum topics. It explores the personal and social implications of past, present, and future quantum developments.
