QBronze84 | QEgypt (May 2022)

QBronze84 | Quantum Computing and Programming Workshop, May 12-13 & 19-20, 2022

We are happy to announce our quantum programming workshop in Egypt! Join us for the introductory workshop “Quantum Computing and Programming”. Learn the basics of quantum computing and how to write simple quantum programs. This quantum workshop is part of QSpring2022 project!

We are inviting high school students, university and graduate students, researchers, professors, and industrial people. During the workshop, we will use the introductory tutorial Bronze-Qiskit by QWorld. We will use Microsoft Teams to communicate with each other and conduct the workshop. Jupyter notebooks will be in English, and lectures will be in Arabic language. The workshop will be held over 4 days.

We will share daily homeworks via QWorld Canvas (five homeworks, in total 100 pts), and the participants who complete them all successfully (at least 50% from each) with at least 70 pts in total, will earn their diplomas!

All material will be explained on Microsoft Teams by the workshop leader. Participants will be given time to work on the problems before moving to the discussion of solutions. Mentor support will be provided for participants to ask their questions and share their progress with mentors.

Day 1 | Thursday 12 May, 17:00 – 22:00 (GMT+2)

  • 16:00 – 17:00 Mentors will be available to help the participants who had issues with the installation of everything needed for the workshop.
  • 17:00 – 18:00 Welcome session with explanations
  • 18:00 – 22:00 Additional session to summarize topics about Classical systems.

After the lecture, participants will work with the following notebooks:
Quantum Coin Flipping, Qiskit installation and test (if you still have issues with the installation), First Quantum Programs with Qiskit, Hadamard Operator, One Qubit, Quantum State.

Notebooks below are optional for those, who need to refresh knowledge on classical systems:
One Bit, Coin Flipping, Coin Flipping Game, Probabilistic Operators, Two Probabilistic Bits.

Individual work (with mentors’ support) until 22:00 (GMT+2)

Day 2 | Friday 13 May, 17:00 – 22:00 (GMT+2)

  • 17:00 – 22:00 Summary on topics of previous Day.

After the lecture, participants will work with the following notebooks:
Visualization of a (Real-Valued) Qubit, Superposition and Measurement, Operations on the Unit Circle, Rotations, Reflections, Quantum Tomography.

Individual work (with mentors’ support) until 22:00 (GMT+2)

Day 3 | Thursday 19 May, 17:00 – 22:00 (GMT+2)

  • 17:00 – 22:00 Summary on topics of previous Day.

After the lecture, participants will work with the following notebooks:
Two Qubits, Phase Kickback, Multiple Control Constructions, Entanglement and Superdense coding, Quantum Teleportation.

Individual work (with mentors’ support) until 22:00 (GMT+2)

Day 4 | Friday 20 May, 17:00 – 22:00 (GMT+2)

  • 17:00 – 22:00 Summary on topics of previous Day. Some closing remarks.

After the lecture, participants will work with the following notebooks:
Inversion About the Mean, Grover’s Search: One Qubit Representation, Grover’s Search: Implementation.

Individual work (with mentors’ support) until 22:00 (GMT+2)

The participants are expected to work individually at least 16 hours to complete the following sections of Bronze-Qiskit: basics of classical systems, basics of quantum systems, basic quantum operators, quantum correlation and quantum protocols, and quantum search algorithm.


The tutorial is a collection of Jupyter notebooks, and each notebook has a recorded lecture. We use python to solve the tasks and Qiskit library to code quantum programs. The participants should know at least one programming language, and they should make themselves familiar with Python before the workshop if they do not know Python. We will share the installation instructions and a few notebooks on basics of mathematics and participants should review them before the workshop starts.
