Outreach and Engagement

From school demonstrations to creating the world’s first quantum artwork, Bristol’s Quantum Engineering Technology Labs (QETLabs) brings the wider community closer to quantum science and technology.

QET Labs maintains a culture of public engagement throughout our group, with students, PDRAs, academics and collaborators all contributing to Quantum in the Crowd, our QET Labs award-winning engagement project.

We believe that people find quantum physics difficult to grasp because it is not intuitive – quantum systems behave in ways that are not seen in our normal day-to-day lives. Through a series of events, online platforms and partnerships we have engaged with people of all ages who are interested in learning more about the world around us. 

Through our engagement project, we hope to encourage the next generation of Quantum Physicists and Engineers, and make our research and technology more accessible to future users.
