The Quantum Effects Academy

[Translate to English:]

Quantum Effects provided comprehensive information about quantum technologies and their use . Therefore, there was a programme specifically tailored to the needs of high school students, students as future users and teachers.

expedition d | on-site experience & learn-trailer

Orientation for students in the working world of tomorrow


How can a car drive autonomously? What can digitalisation do for climate protection? How will we learn in 2030? What professions will there be then and what digital skills will I need for them?

The educational initiative expedition d - Digital Technologies | Applications | Professions provides answers and orientation for the digitalised world of work.

A llearning experience truck, packed with digital technologies, will be stopping off at Messe Stuttgart as part of Quantum Effects.

In the mobile, young people will experience the role that the STEM subjects mathematics, information technology, natural sciences and technology play in digitalisation, how this is changing the world of work and how they can contribute to it themselves.

Teacher training

2nd day afternoon programme

From the basics to experiments with individual quantum objects

As part of this teacher training, Stuttgart University offers a refresher course in the field of quantum physics. Beginning with a repetition of the basics we then move on to topics in modern quantum physics and show where quantum technologies are the pioneers for our future.

The teacher training is organised by Germany-wide groups for physics didactics, which are leading in the didactics of quantum physics (
