Unboxing Quantum: Spooky Action
October 19 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Spooky Action at a Distance
Quantum Entanglement and Spooky Action won the Nobel Prize in physics this year. Once considered a boogieman in physicists’ closets, quantum entanglement is one of the weirdest, most unintuitive phenomena in the natural world. Dubbed “spooky action at a distance” by Einstein himself, this quantum behavior puzzled scientists for years before we could demonstrate it experimentally. In this talk, you will hear about the fascinating science behind entanglement in a fun, interactive, and accessible way!
Ella is the Quantum Computing Outreach Coordinator at UBC Geering Up Engineering Outreach, where she focuses on lowering barriers for youth to engage with STEM. Her program involves making quantum computing a more accessible topic for learners of all ages through summer camps, workshops, local events and more. Ella has a Bachelor’s Degree in Astronomy from UBC’s Physics and Astronomy Department. She is a big fan of all things Halloween, particularly when there is a way to make it overlap with science.
