2024 QCaMP Deadlines

Student applications: April 1, 2024
Teacher applications: April 7, 2024

What is QCaMP?

The strangeness of quantum physics is being harnessed to revolutionize computing as we know it.  At QCaMP, you will get a primer on the fundamentals of computing, learn hands-on the oftentimes perplexing phenomena of quantum physics, and apply those phenomena to solve computing problems in new ways. 

Participants will gain experience creating circuits on a real-world quantum computer and gain access to resources to bring quantum concepts into the classroom.  The only prerequisites for this camp are basic algebra and an interest in learning more!  

QCaMP 2024 will be a 4-week-long camp aimed at the high school student level.  A separate 3-day camp will be held for high school teachers. We hope you’ll join us in the upcoming summer!


QCaMP is not only FREE, but we provide participants with a stipend to offset the cost of spending the summer learning instead of working a summer job.

Who will teach me?

Summer 2022 Instructors were active researchers from Sandia National Laboratories, Berkeley Labs, University of New Mexico, and New Mexico State University and K-12 specialists at Berkeley Labs and CS Alliance, with additional speakers from University of New Mexico, NIEA, and IBM.

The workforce needs in quantum information science (QIS) and technology are evolving rapidly as experimental demonstrations advance powerful quantum technologies. However, the number of unfulfilled job vacancies increases every year, so there is tremendous potential for a highly-skilled and diverse workforce that can harness the promise of quantum advantage for meaningful applications.

QCaMP Goals:

  • Introduce students to an exciting new field that they might not otherwise know about
  • Reach more students by giving teachers the tools to introduce it in their classroom
  • Increase diversity in the field of quantum information science by introducing concepts at an earlier education stage
