The Educator Summit will introduce educators to the resources offered by IBM Quantum, and guide them on getting set-up to use these tools and resources with their students. No prior experience with Qiskit or IBM Quantum is required to participate.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.656;background-color:#f5f6fa;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.656;background-color:#f5f6fa;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:'Red Hat Text',sans-serif;color:#000000;background-color:#f5f6fa;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;white-space:pre-wrap;">The Educator Summit is a collaborative event, so expect to hear from IBM researchers, active teachers, non-profit leaders, and more. Attendees will receive training from IBM Researchers on quantum programming tools such as the IBM Quantum Composer and open-source Qiskit software development kit, hear directly from educators who have already taught quantum computing in their classrooms, receive new curriculum tools and training, and network with like-minded attendees. We aim to prepare all participants to be able to integrate at least one quantum computing concept into their class.</span></p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.656;background-color:#f5f6fa;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;">&nbsp;</p><p dir="ltr" style="line-height:1.656;background-color:#f5f6fa;margin-top:0pt;margin-bottom:0pt;"><span style="font-size:11pt;font-family:'Red Hat Text',sans-serif;color:#000000;background-color:#f5f6fa;font-weight:400;font-style:normal;font-variant:normal;text-decoration:none;vertical-align:baseline;white-space:pre;white-space:pre-wrap;">IBM Quantum is committed to celebrating the diversity of our field and enabling people from all backgrounds and walks of life to excel in quantum computing. We welcome the participation of&mdash;and hope to cater our events to&mdash;all members of the global quantum community.</span></p>
