Erik Weis

Erik Weis is a quantum software engineer at qBraid. He has previously taught math/physics at the high school level. Erik graduated Dartmouth College in 2018, where he majored in physics and did research at the intersection of quantum computing and quantum chemistry.

Spencer Churchill

Spence Churchill is an IBM Qiskit advocate and author of a book that introduces quantum algorithms using fairy tales. He is currently obtaining his BS in Computer Science from the University of California, Irvine. Spence is excited to apply to graduate school for quantum as it brings him closer to his dream of being a professor. He has presented introductory quantum lectures for universities around the world and finds quantum to be incredible. Spence can't wait to share some of its wackiest properties in this course!

In Partnership with qBraid

We've collaborated with qBraid to make the learning experience even better! The qBraid platform is a one-stop solution for learning about and writing programs for quantum computers. It contains integrated courses at varying levels of difficulty, from a general introduction to quantum computing to application-specific tutorials. These courses are hands-on, with all the quantum code executable from cloud-based notebooks
