Quantum Tic-Tac-Toe Workshops

Apr 29 2022 Posted: 14:05 IST

Victoria Sánchez Muñoz, a PhD student from the School of Mathematical & Statistical Sciences, developed a workshop to introduce primary school children to some concepts of quantum physics using a game, “Quantum Tic-Tac-Toe”!  Victoria delivered the workshop in person to classes in St. Patricks  National School, Claddagh National School and Galway Educate Together during the month of April.   The workshops are one hour in duration and their main purpose is to introduce the pupils to the quantum world in a fun way by using a game. The game is played on a computer and is a version of the usual tic-tac-toe (Xs and Os) but with additional rules that serve to illustrate two concepts used in quantum physics.
