The Centre's outreach programme exists to inspire young people's interest in science, to support media reporting on quantum technologies, and to engage adults from all backgrounds in learning about how nature works and what new technologies may affect their future. 

For public

For schools

CQT is keen to work with schools to support and encourage interest in science in young students. Students are keen too: quantum physics offers mind-blowing ideas and quantum technologies promises future jobs.

For media

We're happy to help media professionals find expert comment or research stories. CQT's scientists have been interviewed by media worldwide, from the BBC to the Wall Street Journal. We also host visits and residencies.
