  6. 6

    The program is an 8-month long introduction to the quantum computing course.


IBM had already partnered with Qiskit to make quantum computing education accessible worldwide. The collaboration with The Coding School is another step in this direction.

Earlier IBM had announced its mission to design a cloud-based complete quantum computer by the end of this decade. The team at IBM aims to develop the IBM Quantum Candor by the end of 2023.

Founded in 2014, The Coding School is a tech education nonprofit working towards making students future-ready. It has already taught 15,000 students across 60 countries how to code. Quantum courses, conducted previously by The Coding Class, have nearly 70% of students from historically underrepresented communities in STEM.

This summer, the Qiskit team conducted the Qiskit Global Summer School, a free introductory quantum computing course for 2-weeks. The course was attended by 4084 students across 101 nations.

The registration is already open and you can apply online.

The course begins on 18th October 2020. Students will be accepted in two rounds- on 9th October and 15th October.
