Quantum Computing Spring Hackathon

Case Quantum Computing Club and Case Hacker Society will co-host a hackathon Saturday, April 22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Tinkham Veale University Center, Ballroom A.

Students are invited to participate to learn how to program quantum computers through introductory challenges as well as in-depth projects.

Red Bull is sponsoring this event and will drop off free drinks. There also will be free food and prizes for participants.

There will be two options to participate in the hackathon. The first option is to complete the provided tutorial challenges to learn the basics of coding programs on quantum computers. Assistance will be available. Anyone who either completes these challenges or shows up and attempts them for at least an hour will earn a free Mitchell’s Ice Cream scoop coupon.

The second option is a traditional hackathon challenge that will be released at the start of the event. Students can participate in teams and the code will be due Sunday night. The winning team will win $100 worth of Amazon gift cards to be split among the team members.
