Meet Prof Michelle Simmons - leading the race to build the world's first quantum computer 

6:00pm, 12 June 2018 
Scitech 
City West Centre Sutherland Street &, Railway St, West Perth

TICKETS via Eventbrite

One of the world’s top scientists, Professor Michelle Simmons has pioneered research that could lead to a quantum leap in computing.  Since arriving in Australia from Britain 18 years ago, Michelle has transformed the University of NSW Quantum Physics Department into a world leader in advanced computer systems. 

In 2012, Michelle and her team created the world’s first transistor made from a single atom, along with the world’s thinnest wire. At the forefront of what she calls the “space race of the computing era”, Michelle aims to build a quantum computer able to solve problems in minutes that would otherwise take thousands of years.  Such a discovery has the potential to revolutionise drug design, weather forecasting, self-driving vehicles, artificial intelligence and more.

An evangelist for Australian scientific research and a role model to young scientists everywhere, Michelle actively encourages all students – girls and boys – to dream big, challenge themselves and to achieve ambitious goals in science.

Free Student Forum - Eddie Woo

The Octagon Theatre 
Univeristy of WA, Hackett Drive, Crawley  


Educators and students are encouraged to come and be inspired at this FREE EVENT.

Eddie Woo is arguably Australia’s most famous mathematics teacher, making maths fun and attracting young people to engage with maths by making it relatable and interesting

A brilliant student, Eddie could have chosen any field, but in defiance of social convention and his parents’ wish for him to become a doctor, he followed his passion and opted for teaching. He's using his vocation to “pay it forward” to make education equitable for all.
