NSF-funded QuSTEAM program, in which Prof. Kohei Kishida takes part, awarded $5 million


QuSTEAM: Convergence Undergraduate Education in Quantum Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics [link: https://qusteam.org/], is a multidisciplinary, multi-institutional program funded by the National Science Foundation.  It aims to make quantum science education more inclusive and accessible to diverse audiences, including non-STEM majors, students in non-R1 institutions, and the general public.  Professor Kishida has been part of the program since its Phase I as a subject matter expert.

The program was awarded a $5 million from NSF for Phase II over a two-year period.  (See https://news.osu.edu/ohio-state-led-qusteam-initiative-awarded-5-million-from-nsf/, https://csl.illinois.edu/news/41581 for more on the program and the award.)  In Phase II, Professor Kishida co-leads a team of experts who develop a core course on the logics of classical vs. quantum computation and programming.
