Expanding and diversifying the QIST workforce requires engaging students from early stages up through graduate school. A successful curriculum should be both pedagogical and rigorous.

Ed Barnes, Physics Department Faculty at Virginia Tech, describes high-school QIST outreach activities that avoid advanced math yet still enable students to perform hands-on calculations and understand simple quantum algorithms in a quantitative way.

Barnes also gives an overview of QIST undergraduate/graduate courses and our plans for a new minor degree at Virginia Tech that are designed to be accessible to students from across STEM fields.
