Happy World Quantum Day from the National Quantum Initiative

Happy #WorldQuantumDay!

Agencies across the Federal Government joined the grassroots, international celebration to promote public understanding of quantum science and technology.

One example is the National Q-12 Education Partnership‘s video, “What YOU can do with quantum science.” OSTP, NSF, and NASA all contributed to its production, plus industry, academia, and professional societies. It is narrated by LeVar Burton (of Reading Rainbow, Star Trek, and Roots fame) and features quantum scientists and students, as well as NASA Astronaut Josh Cassada.

Additional activities are highlighted in a whitehouse.gov blog post.

Another activity was a social media conversation between OSTP, NIST, NSF, DOE, NIH, NASA, DoD, STATE, and DHS about how quantum impacts their missions. Below, we have captured the conversation:
