Quantum Computing for Kids
Discover how quantum computers work, how they can crack incredibly complex codes and can compress thousands of years of machine learning into just a few seconds!
Quantum Computing for Kids
For online courses: these require you to have a capable computer to work on and a broadband internet connection. Most PC/Mac computers from the last 5 years will be fine but you can view our recommended detailed system requirements here. For on campus courses: laptops are provided for all junior courses, as well as Music, Unity, Creative Design & YouTube senior courses. Laptop rental is available for all other senior courses (£50 extra).

Programme Leaders have a strong background in education coupled with technical expertise in the area they teach. They are supported by Camp Tutors, who are most frequently talented Computer Science and Engineering students from the UK's leading universities.
All our instructors undergo in-person training from the Fire Tech team in the curriculum of the course they are teaching, in the Fire Tech mission and values, and in our Child Safety Policies. We select our instructors on technical expertise but also for great communication skills and a real passion for their subject.
Quantum Computing might be the next big thing, but what’s it all about? It sounds mysterious and frankly awesome.
Quantum computers have the potential to revolutionise computation by solving the most difficult problems. In this cutting edge Fire Tech Experience, kids will learn how to think like a computer, and better yet a quantum computer, by using qubits! Discover how quantum computers can use their special qubit talents to solve complex problems amazingly quickly. That means we’re just at the beginning of discovering what they can do for us.
Learn about quantum computing now and tell friends you heard it here first!
FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar style, using Zoom, with the main expert tutor showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning. Apart from Zoom, no other downloads are required.
