Sixth Formers hear about quantum technology

Sixth Form students who study maths, computer science and physics were treated to a special lecture from a visiting PhD student on Wednesday 16th June. Sophie Albosh visited Ruislip High School representing the University of York. Some students from Year 10 were also invited who have a special interest in STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and maths).

One of the Year 12 students said, “It was interesting to learn more about how signal processing is used in so much of the technology we use today. I learnt a lot about polarisation of light and the importance of ‘keys’ used to decode signals. Sophie was a very engaging speaker – thanks for a great talk!”
